This article will provide you the step by step instructions to add a temporary swap to your hypervisor in order to complete the upgrade process

You might get an error while deploying our customised ESXi upgrade, similar to:

       vibs = VMware_locker_tools-light_11.1.1.16303738-16701467
 Please refer to the log file for more details.

The error is caused by Swap size, which is insufficient for temporary actions to be taken.
