Migrate vcenter from VCSA to windows vcenter version

Hello all

There is a workaround to migrate from windows vcenter 6.x to vcsa version.

I need a clear answer if the opposite is true without installing a NEW windows vcenter and move everything to the new one

Your help will be valuable

Thanks in advance

Hi,

Yes, you can migrate from VCS 6.U2 to VCSA 6.U2 with vSphere migration Tool 6.U2.

Look in this links for more information:

vSphere 6.0 Documentation Center

vCenter Server Migration Tool: vSphere 6.0 Update 2m - VMware vSphere Blog

DanielOprea‌,

Do you have more information about this?  Everything I am searching for only shows that the migration tool will migrate VCS 5.5 to VCSA 6.  I can't seem to locate anything about going from VCS 6 to VCSA 6.

Thank you

Jon

If you do find a solution for this (I am aware of none) be mindful that VMware are releasing certain new features in the VCSA only (vCenter HA for example).

The roadmap "seems" to be that the Windows Server edition will eventually go especially now that the VCSA supports everything (and more) than the Windows edition does
