While upgrading vShield Manager from 5.0 to 5.1 for an upcoming blog post, I ran into an issue where vShield Manager was telling me the upgrade bundle was invalid, as below.
After further inspection, I noticed that the original file listed on VMware’s site for download was a .tar.gz
So, on the off-hand chance that it might work, I renamed the file to .tar.gz, and lo and behold, the upgrade proceeded without any problems.
As a note, I experienced this with Windows 7 x64 and Chrome 21.0.1180.89. If you experienced this as well, please leave a comment with your OS and browser so we can let others know the conditions in which this might happen.
