VCSA 6.5.0.32200 to VCSA 6.7U3b Upgrade - Back in Time Upgrade Restriction According to Upgrade Matrix

Jump to solution

I am planning on upgrading my 4-host vSAN cluster from 6.5 to 6.7.  Currently, my VCSA sits at level 6.5.0.32200 build# 15679215. It's the latest for the version.  I wanted to upgrade to VCSA 6.7U3b, but have run into a snag.  It seems that because the VCSA 6.7 version is older (December 2019) than my current 6.5 VCSA version (February 2020), it is not recommended to upgrade due to "Back in Time Upgrade Restrictions".

Obviously, I won't do this upgrade now as things stand.  I'm not even sure if it's possible or if the upgrade will know the date and end the process.  Anyway, is there way to find out when another update will be available for VCSA 6.7 so that I actually can upgrade?  Is there any sort of release cycle for VCSA?

Appreciate the input.  Thx.

I'm afraid that there's no predefined release cycle for updates or patches, so all that you can do at this point is to wait until the next update/patch is released, and check e.g. the release notes to find out whether an upgrade is supported (see https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/67077).
