I was told that in order to carry out a supported migration from vCenter Server 6.0 for windows to vCenter server Appliance 6.5 U1 I need to be on 6.0U3 (currently on 6.0U2)
I cant find any documentation to support this extra hop in the upgrade process. can anyone advise?
This is supported if you are currently running vCenter 6.0 U2 as per the below:
If you migrate from 6.0 to 6.5 basically a new appliance will be deployed and data will be copied over.The old server will be powered off.In our case migration and upgrade is technically the same
Would like to add to the above information, this link below would help you understand the process of the Migration/upgrade from Windows VC to VCSA.
