VMware vCenter – Update VCSA

Welcome to my VMware vSphere series. In this session I will describe updating VCSA 6.7. I’m in the process of adding a couple of new esxi-servers to my lab. Before I do that, I will update my VCSA. I know this is basic knowledge to many, but I decided to add it as it might be helpful to others.

I log into my vCenter’s Web concole, port 5480


Before I update I have v. 6.7 Build 10244745


If i click Update from the menu on the left, I can select the update, I click STAGE AND INSTALL


I accept the terms, Next


I deselect CEIP, Next


I have a backup, Finish


The update begins, as this is my lab, it takes quite a while.


After the update finishes and the appliance restarts, I can verify that the new build is now 13010631.


I can also verify that there is a new vCenter login page, nice
