HCX Cloud Manager activation/upgrade

Jump to solution

Evening, a bit of a long shot but I thought worth asking.

Is it possible to install a HCX Cloud Manage appliance, and activate this without it applying the latest HCX updates?

I have a use case where I need to step through the upgrade process, yet each time the activation step complete the appliance is then upgraded automatically to 4.3.1.

Thanks, Ben.

I'm afraid you cannot stop the self upgrade process.

Funny you should mention that, I had a similar thought yesterday and tried exactly this.

Didn't work though, the appliance sat with the below for over 3 hours.
