    Upgrading from ESxi 5.5 to 6.7

    PSCHelpdesk Lurker

      Hi guys,

      Just taken over at a College that has had no VMare love for a while.

      Currently running version Exi 5.5.0 and would like to upgrade to 6.7.

      Can anyone please give me assistance? We just called VMware support and have had the super user moved from the old tech that doesn't exist to me.

      Any help would be great, thanks very much!

          Check if your HW is certified for 6.7 as well as all your 3rd. party stuff like Backup and monitoring. Update the later ones first and than perform the vSphere upgrade/new install as long as your HW is 6.7 ready.

            First of all verify VMware ESXi 6.7 compatibility with your server platform ( Check it exactly and also generation of your Server). If nothing has been shown about it, i suggest to don't try to customize and upgrade it to version 6.7 (Try older versions like 6.0 6.5, they are still supported).

            And about your vCenter (If you have in your environment) first upgrade to version 6.0 and then upgrade it to 6.7
