Canceled vCenter 7.0 Upgrade now vCenter 6.7 stuck at "Starting VMware Performance Charts"

Hey, all,

I started the process of upgrading our vCenter appliance from 6.7 to 7.0. We have not yet replaced our Dell Equallogic SAN and the storage plugin still uses flash. So, when I saw that 7.0 doesn't support flash, I went through the process of cancelling the upgrade and it rolled back to 6.7. I'm trying to log into the appliance in the web browser so that I can check for updates. Once I sign in, I see what's shown in the attachment. What options do I have?

Hello,

I had the same issue and found your post while googling.

The "touch  ..." part at the end of this article worked for me KB 67179: VMware Knowledge Base

extract ;

basically vami is looking for prechecks-succeeded,export-succeeded & import-succeeded files which will not be present in /var/log/vmware/upgrade, though this is zero kb file, create a file by using touch

# touch prechecks-succeeded

# touch export-succeeded

# touch import-succeeded

I would suggest restoring your backup (if you have one).

Consider giving Kudos if you think my response helped you in any way.

Hi,

What was your solution to the problem? We experiencing the same issue and VMware support has not solved the problem.

The "touch" files are not helping to resolve our issue as the import of data is just skipped.

I can confirm adding the below files to /var/log/vmware/upgrade stopped the upgrade process.

# touch prechecks-succeeded

# touch export-succeeded

# touch import-succeeded
