vCenter Server 7.0.0a

VMware vCenter Server 7.0.0a

VMware released a new vCenter Server version: 7.0.0a, 7.0.0.10300, build 16189094. In this article I cover the resolved issues and I show how easy is to update from the previous version of vCenter Server 7.0.0 to the latest 7.0.0a. I also include few images with the new update notification features from vSphere Client.

In case you are looking for an upgrade demonstration from vCenter Server 6.7 to vCenter Server 7.0.0, you can check my other article: How to Upgrade vCenter Server Appliance from 6.7 to 7.0 – Stage 1.

vCenter Server 7.0.0a – Resolved Issues

This release of vCenter Server 7.0.0a delivers the following patch:

  • Patch for VMware vCenter Server Appliance 7.0.0a (VMware-vCenter-Server-Appliance-7.0.0.10300-16189094-patch-FP.iso)

The patch resolves a vSAN issue: vSphere Lifecycle Manager and vSAN File Services cannot be simultaneously enabled on a vSAN cluster. With vCenter Server 7.0.0a you can enable both vSAN File Services and vSphere Lifecycle Manager at the same time on a cluster.

Upgrade from vCenter Server 6.7 Update 3g to vCenter Server 7.0.0a is not supported. Upgrade is supported though from older versions of vCenter Server 6.7. You can check KB67077 for the upgrade matrix.
