Moderator: Moved to vSphere Upgrade & Install
I'm not sure I would worry about 6.7, but what I'd absolutely do is the following:
- Migrate that Windows-based vCenter to the vCenter Server Appliance (vCSA) to 6.5. Alternatively, build a net-new vCSA on 6.5 and swing hosts.
- Upgrade ESXi hosts to 6.5
At the very least, this'll protect you from vSphere 6.0 going EoGS early next year.
Welcome to VMware communities.
From the description I can understand that you have 6.0 hosts managed by 6.0 windows vCenter server.
Since you are not using any vCenter related features and no backup software integration, you can go ahead and deploy a new vCenter appliance 6.7 and rebuild it however there are few points to be considered which I have explained below:
When you deploy new vCenter appliance 6.7 and add the 6.0 hosts to it :
- You will loose all the VM and host related performance stats, tasks and events data
- This will work only if the ESXi hosts are not on distributed switch
- If you have all port groups on distributed switch, you have to migrate them to standard before disconnecting/removing from the source vCenter server
So if you have made up your mind to go for new vCenter appliance here are the steps:
Deploy new vCenter 6.7 appliance
Once deployed you can power off the source vCenter 6.0 machine
Start creating Datacenter and Clusters as per your requirement in the 6.7 appliance
Now you can add the ESXi 6.0 hosts to the cluster
It would give a warning stating that hosts are already managed by another vCenter and do you want to move it here
Select YES and then start adding all the hosts
Now you can upgrade the 6.0 hosts to 6.5 or 6.7 based on which version the hardware supports
You can upgrade hosts using 6.7 Update Manager
