I am currently working on patching my vcenter server 5.5 from version 3252642 to 6516310. I came across the vmware article where it says that I have to update this in sequence as follows SSO --> Vcenter Client --> Inventory Service --> Vcenter Server --> Java Components --> tc Server ,etc. I already have Vcenter SS0 and Vcenter Inventory Service up to date. Can I start upgrading Vcenter Server directly?
The Sequence is as follows
4. vCenter servers
Java and tc are part of vCenter and they will be installed/updated automatically. If you have updated SSO ,webclient and Inventory, proceed with vCenter server there wont be any issues.
