    What exact version of 6.5 and 6.7 does the upgrade/migration tool get you to?

      We have to plan four vCenter upgrades for September.


      Two of them will be 6.0U2 (Build 3634793) Windows based (external PSC), to 6.5U2h VCSA (external PSC).  Followed almost immediately by VCSA 6.5U2h Upgrade to VCSA 6.7U2 with embedded PSC.  There are 2 SRM upgrades required also, one during each upgrade.  Thoughts on going directly to 6.7 U2 in one activity are welcome.  The downside on that is we end up at external PSC.


      The other two vCenter upgrades are straight from VCSA 6.5U2 (Build 9451637, external PSC) to VCSA 6.7 U2 embedded PSC.


      What I am wondering is;


      Using 6.0 to 6.5 Upgrade/Migration tool, what version of 6.5 do you get to?

      Using 6.5 to 6.7 Upgrade/Migration tool, what version of 6.7 do you get to?


      I think it matters because if the tool gets you to 6.7 GA for example, then wouldn't a 6.5 U2 to 6.7 (GA) upgrade be considered "back-in-time" and not supported?
