      Hello Experts,



      Is it possible in anyway to convert the external PSC to an embeded PSC. I am planning to upgrade from vCenter (Appliance ) version 6.5 U1 to 6.7 U3. I also understand that converge tool is avaialable for this task but it is avaiable from version 6.5 u2d and later. And, seems all the articles I read - say that external PSC cannot be converted to embeded PSC before version 6.5 u2d. Is this right?


      Many thanks in advance.

          Here are the steps I would follow...


          Upgrade the PSCs to 6.7, one at a time in the SSO

          Use the converge tool to change the vCenters to embedded

          Use the converge tool to decommission PSCs

            You can upgrade to vSphere 6.7 update 3 and then do this. This is a simpler and uncomplicated method.

            I remember that vSphere 6.5 Update 2 does not have such support. With the release of vSphere 6.5 Update 2d, it was announced that the Platform Services Controller (PSC) external type deployment will end.
