vcsa 6.5 upgrade to 6.7

Jump to solution

Hello,

I have two vcenters both running 6.5  on vcenter 1 my vcsa failed to hold the network adapter in an HA setup.

So I installed a new vcsa 6.7 moved my hosts over and was up and running.  Need to setup HA later on 6.7.

My problem was my Veeam jobs would not run since it was looking for the original VCSA.

I deleted all the Veeam jobs and recreated them pointing to the new VCSA all working again.

I am wondering if there is a better way for my second vcenter

I reviewed articles about the upgrade process and I see it creates a new vcsa and the old vcsa get deleted after the upgrade process completes.

Problem is this is almost like a new install and my Veeam server on vcenter 2 will not see the old vcsa name.

Is there a way to upgrade and keep the same name?

Thanks

Tom

To be honest, the simplest way described for example here:

should keep all your names.

Have you ever tried to upgrade in such a way? For example on the lab?
