Error on vCenter Server Upgrade 7.03 to 8 - Unable to connect to port 22

Jump to solution

I'm using Upgrade Wizzard to upgrade vCenter to 8.0 version. The first etape work fine, like in vide but in start of second phase I got a error : "Pre-upgrade check failed due the following problem: Error in method invocation [Errno None] Unable to connect to port 22 on my_server_IP_adress".

Non way to continue.

An idea, I'm really desperate.

The error msg says that SSH on port 22 cant be reached. So check (in VAMI) if SSH is enabled or just try it by starting putty and the IP of our source vCenter.

I resolved it by replacing the IP address with FQDN of VCSA and ESXi host FQDN on the first page of the stage 2 upgrade wizard and now the upgrade is working fine! .)

It's already FQDN address on the dialog box. And no way to change it... 😞

Cancel the upgrade, change it and start upgrading again. From which build you are trying to upgrade?

Is SSH enabled on your VCSA?
