VMware: vCenter Server Appliance 6.0 Update 1

VMware: vCenter Server Appliance 6.0 Update 1

That time has come, when you upgrade vCenter 6.0.  Here are some quick simple steps to see this done.

As always, its a good idea to have a backup before proceeding.  In my case I used a snapshot of my appliance. This was done by me connecting directly to the ESXi and creating a snapshot.

And here are the steps to start this process:

  1. Download the VCSA 6.0 Update 1 from  the VMware Patch Download Website. File-name: VMware-vCenter-Server-Appliance-6.0.0.10000-3018521-patch-FP.iso
  2. Mount the VCSA 6.0 Update 1 Patch ISO to your VCSA 6.x appliance. I attached the ISO by logging into the ESXi and then attaching to the guest appliance
  3. Next is to be logged into the VCSA 6.x appliance via SSH – note this must be an admin account.  I used the local root user and password
  4. Run the following command to begin the installation process: software-packages install –iso –acceptEulas

  5. When completed issue the reboot command: shutdown reboot -r “Updated, thanks to my buddy jermsmit”

     

Congrats you have upgraded.
