Considerations before upgrading vSphere 6.5 to 6.7?

Post by lostbackups »

I have a SAN (VM storage) two ESXi servers and the vCenter Virtual Appliance. I've upgraded my storage controller to the latest firmware which supports vmware 6.7. Next, I would be upgrading vCenter from 6.5 to 6.7 and then each ESXi host.

I did read that I should disable any service dependent on vCenter during the upgrade, so this would mean turning off the Veeam backup services, which is not a big deal. I just want to see if there are any other considerations with regards to Veeam backups when upgrading.

Hello,

The vSphere 6.7 (up to 6.7 u3) is officially supported by version 10 and 9.5 update 4b.
I wouldn't expect any issues, just make sure that there are no backup jobs or restore sessions in progress during upgrade, it should be fully transparent for Veeam.

Thanks!

We had to do rescans of our vCenter before Veeam would see it after our 6.5 to 6.7 upgrade. Nothing too serious though
