This issue has been solved. See solution.

Using the installer script to upgrade from SF 5.1 to SFHA 6.1.  There is no VCS on this server and the installer exits:

Logs are being written to /var/tmp/installer-201302061759ZoK while installer is in progress

    Checking installed product CPI ERROR V-9-40-1083 Cannot upgrade  product because it is not installed on your system.
 

I can no longer see an option to install or  upgrade just the SF components without HA, jusat a choice of SFHA or VCS so not sure best solution.

The installer is probably calling "installsf -ha", so trying running installsf manually so you can omit the -ha option (the installsf program should be in the storage_foundation directory).

Once SF is upgraded, you should then be able to run installvcs (from cluster_server directory).
