Upgrade directly VCF 3.10 to VCF 4.x

Jump to solution

Dear all,

Is there any possible to upgrade VCF 3.10 to VCF 4.x (4.2)?

According to document, https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-Cloud-Foundation/4.0/rn/VMware-Cloud-Foundation-40-Release-Notes.h... the VCF 3.10 cannot be upgraded to VCF 4.0. It will be appreciated if you share anyway to upgrade directly VCF from 3.10 to 4.x. Thank you!

Please refer to the 4.3.1 Release Notes: https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-Cloud-Foundation/4.3.1/rn/VMware-Cloud-Foundation-431-Release-Note...

What's New

The VMware Cloud Foundation 4.3.1 release includes the following:

  • Limited Support for in-place migration from VMware Cloud Foundation 3.10.1.2+ releases: In addition to existing migration methods, customers can now engage the VMware Professional Service Organization (PSO) to perform an assessment for a potential in-place migration from VMware Cloud Foundation 3.10.1.2+ releases to VMware Cloud Foundation 4.3.1. Contact your sales and channel teams for guidance on choosing the best method for migrating your environment

Hi,

 

There is currently no direct upgrade path, general recommendation is a side-by-side migration if you have the resources.

VCF 3.x to 4.x we dont have a path and currenlty its not possible. 

if you want your infra to upgrade to 4.x then you will have to rebuild your VCF 3.x to 4.x , thats the only option right now. 

Since VCF 4.x MGMT has NSx-T and NSX-V is no more there in VCF , we will have to wait for VMware to provide the supported Path 

Thanks & Regards,

VCF 3.10 to VCF 4. x is not supported for the upgrade.

The only option to built-in parallel if you have extra hardware 🙂

You need to reach out to VMware PSO team to take consultation and then do inplace migration of VCF 3.x to 4.x, vRA 7x to 8.x and NSXV to NSXT

Need min version of SDDC Manager 3.10.1.2 to proceed with this migration.

You mean to say we can only upgrade as per BOM but not migrate any VCF build

Hi Rajiv,

 

so the VCF 3.x to 4.x is purely internal to VMware Team. No public docs available. 

VCF 3.x to 3.x / 4.x to 4.x upgrade as per BOM . But from VCF 3.x to 4.x its a in-place migration .
