vCenter 6.7 Build 13638830 - Cannot find this build?

My vCenter shows it is on 6.7.0 build 13638830. I cannot seem to find reference to this build? I had downloaded and installed VMware-VIM-all-6.7.0-13643870. Can I assume my upgrade failed with no indication? I cannot even find reference to 13638830?

Rest assured, you're on the latest vCenter build. Do not concern yourself with the lack of finding that build number out there. It's just a lag in documentation.

Can you take a screenshot of where you're seeing this build number?

I actually uninstalled and reinstalled the vCenter and it still shows this version. I cannot find it even w/Google.

Weird, I guess they just didn't update the version mapping.

You have the Windows-based vCenter there. You ideally shouldn't be installed a new vCenter on the Windows platform as this is a dead end and will not continue after this version, not to mention there are a whole host of features it doesn't support. The only thing you should be installing anew at this point is the vCenter Server Appliance (vCSA) which can also be found on that downloads page.

What’s weird is I can’t find mention of this build anywhere.

I only install vcenter for my convenience. I only have one Host. Once it’s gone, unless I add another, I’ll just live without it.

I understand there's no reference, but this is the most recent build that incorporates fixes. The docs and KBs will probably be updated soon. What's the question or problem here, exactly?

I upgraded my host manually to 6.7 and then installed vcenter. I’m getting LT1F notice and  Per VMware Knowledge Base I wanted to ensure I was in latest vcenter build. Since my host is fully patched, and I’m still seeing this LT1F message, I am questioning the vcenter build.

That build is the windows client for 6.7u2a.

Please take a look at https://blogs.vmware.com/vsphere/2019/06/decoding-the-vcenter-server-lifecycle-update-and-versioning...

this blog explains the difference in versioning, the build you are looking at is the web client/mob build not that actually vCenter Server build. it should be updated at VMware Knowledge Base soon
