Downgrade vSphere 7 Enterprise Plus to 6.0
Hi, i've just purchased a vSphere 7 Enterprise Plus license and i what to a dowgrade to the 6.0 version.
How can i get it?
you can downgrade to 6.5 or 6.7 the license from VMware portal if you have access or through VMware licensing team via support if you have valid support contract .BTW why you are looking to downgrade as 6.0? which is already End of General Support for vSphere 6.0 in March 12, 2020. To maintain your full level of Support and Subscription Services, VMware recommends upgrading to vSphere 6.5 or vSphere 6.7.
I need downgrade to v6 because my datacenter is v6 and at moment a dont have contract support and not enough budget to upgrade my v6 licences to v7. And we receive new host with v7 license.
If the new licenses are registered in your My VMware portal, you can downgrade the keys to version 6. Later, once you are ready for an upgrade, you may simply upgrade the keys again.
This should help: VMware Knowledge Base
Hi I need to downgrade as well as 1 application which I need doesn't work on v7
Do I first need to release the licenses from my ESXI and Vcenter first or can I just reinstall the servers? as I thought the file system of 7 is not the same as V6
