Hello to everyone from Germany,
i have a Customer with the following environment.
1x Windows vCenter 6.0 U3 with one external PSC Appliance 6.0 (No windows PSC)
The Customer want to mirgrate/upgrade to the following configuration.
1x vCenter 6.5 U1 Appliance with external PSC 6.5 Appliance
I get the following error when starting the the vCenter Migration Assitant on the Windows vCenter 6.0 U3
After this warning I wanted to Upgrade the PSC 6.0 Appliance via Gui to PSC 6.5 Appliance.
This also fails with this Message.
This error is described in the KB
Upgrading vCenter Server Appliance from 6.0 to 6.5 results in an error: "Unable to detect appliance ...
The root PW is not expired.
Anyone an Idea to solve this?
My plan for tomorrow:
Deploy a new PSC 6.5 and connect/register it with the actual vCenter 6.0 Windows Server.
After this, starting the vCenter Migration Assistant and the Migration/Upgrade via GUI.
Hopefully it will work.
Did you try to change the password and disable expiry date as described in the KB?
The Root PW was not expired.
Did you ever find out that cause for this error? I have encountered the same problem going from 6.0 U3e to 6.5 U1g. These builds were released on the same day, so I wouldn't think it would be a "back in time" conflict.
None of my appliance root passwords are expired or set to expire.
I also tried upgrading to 6.5U2c, and got the same error. Definitely not a "back in time" issue, then.
