Already rebooted the vCenter Server Appliance before upgrading? Also verify that the FQDN is resolvable.
We were able upgrade the PSCs (2 external PSCs) without issue.
I have rebooted and tried this upgrade several times. Same exact error every time...
Forward and Reverse DNS lookup zones are populated. You can ping all of the appliances from each other. NSLOOKUPs working without issue.
If the new appliance 6.5 is created, please check the vpxd.log in the newly created 6.5 appliance which can shed some light on why the service firstboot failed.
I need to simulate a Windows domain/Active Directory network across 3 sites/physical locations with site-to-site VPN connecting them. I figured I run pfSense (in VM) with OpenVPN as the firewall/router since I'm somewhat familiar with it. I'm running ESXi 6.5 LiteBlue.
