vCenter Update or Upgrade

Jump to solution

Hallo Team,

I gave up. I though I knew this. But I do not.

I have to patch my vCenter Appliance (6.5.0.5300 Build Number 5178943) to cover the latest security vulnerabilities.

I go to vcenter appliance portal and i see below message


Update Status : Latest updates already installed on vCSA, nothing to stage/install

Be it Check Repository or Check CD ROM ( I downloaded the patch) https://my.vmware.com/group/vmware/patch#search latest version

It does not work.

What am I Missing here?

I can't tell you why no patches show up, but what you may try is to update/patch in steps, i.e. from the current state to 6.5 Update 1 (Build 5973321) using the "fp" ISO image from the patch portal. Once installed, check the updates again. If there's still nothing that shows up automatically, proceed with Update 2 (Build 8307201), then Update 3 (Build 14020092), and finally update to the latest available patch.

As an alternative - unless you have reasons against it - you may upgrade to the latest 6.7 version, which should work in a single step.
