    vSAN Health Service Version Update on ESXi 6.0 with vCSA 6.5 GA

    stephentzsamal Lurker

      Hi

      I 4 node cluster. ALl hosts running latest update of ESXi 6.0.

      vCenter deployed was vCSA 6.5 GA.

      After creating the vSAN I can see that the Health Service version is in Warning state: 6.2.0.0 upgrade to 6.5.0.0 suggested).

      From everything Im reading having the health service enabled its supposed to update all the hosts to the latest version (DRS is in Fully Automated).

      However, it hasn't happened. So I'm wondering, is it because the hosts are running ESXi 6.0? Do they need to be upgraded to  6.5 to support vSAN 6.5?

       

      Thanks

          Yes, that's why. The hosts and vCenter versions must agree to run a healthy vSAN cluster.

            Greetings!

             

            You have answered your question yourself in your post.

            This is expected behavior as your ESXi hosts are on 6.0 version and vCenter on 6.5 version.

            vCenter is just managing the vSAN ESXi hosts. The Health Service is actually installed on individual hosts. In your case, the hosts have 6.0 Health Service but vCenter has latest health info i.e. 6.5. vCenter can only show warning in this case as It cannot do anything till the time hosts are not on the 6.5 version. So you need to upgrade the ESXi hosts as well to 6.5 version in order to use latest Health Service.

             

            Hope this answers your query!
