Simon Sparks says
None of the links work, maybe only people on a VMware network can see the pages...
William Lam says
See the note at the very top 🙂
Keiran Shelden says
Great work as always William! Thanks for the links, holding out for them all to be live!

Excelent news, thank you for sharing this.
Tom Bosley says
PMEM support! Yes!

I am now curious if a vCenter with an external PSC can be consolidated into a vCenter with embedded PSC. Perhaps the only way is a redeployment and restoring from a backup. The SSO domain changes are also a welcome change!
Should I see the upgrade for VCSA in the web UI of VCSA under Updates? I'm not seeing it there, and maybe I need to wait for it to show up?
William Lam says
Remember, major VCSA upgrades uses a Migration based approach (not an in-place upgrade). Please take a look at the documentation for detailed instructions on upgrading your VCSA
When I run the vCSA 6.7 installer in Windows, I get the options Install, Upgrade, Migrate, and Restore.
Nevermind... I got it. I chose Upgrade and it eventually worked. It created a new VM, shut down the old VM, transferred all the data, and gave the old IP and host name to the new VM.

Well this sucks, Westmere based Xeons (5600 series) will no longer work! My home lab has 12 blades, all with Xeon L5620 CPUs...
Daniel Lane says
Turns out that even though the release notes say it will fail, the install works perfectly on Westmere CPUs! Nehalem will aparently fail though, but luckily most Nehalem systems can be upgraded to Westmere.
I birthed a 6.7 VCSA and attached a virtual ESXi host built off a L5640 physical host and update manager tells me it's incompatible. Granted I have hooked up DRAC to the actual physical host to try it for real, just curious how you know
*haven't hooked up DRAC
Daniel, can you re-confirm that you installed 6.7 without a hitch on your L5620? This is the only documentation I have regarding possible compatibility with any of the 56xx Westmere CPUs. I ask because I am currently sourcing Westmere CPUs for my upcoming FreeNAS build.
Your link to 'host client' release notes is slightly wrong.
William Lam says
Thanks for the catch Brad. I've just fixed
tom miller says
Thanks for the update William! I'm always surprised though when a new release comes out and the major sub-components such as VIEW are not supported? Seems like product teams could get on the same release schedule.
New ESXi/Hypervisor user here - I have a free license for 6.5 that I installed on 4/16 (2 days ago). Any reason the VMware Download Center gives the following error when trying to download the 6.7 ISO?
"You either are not entitled or do not have permissions to download this product."
I've confirmed the "license key" (quotes because the product still has to be registered) shows up in my download history and it's assigned in the host itself. Thanks!
This morning i upgraded my test vCenter to 6.7 perfectly. direct after that i started using the HTML5 client no problem. but the new Webclient does not work at all on 3 up to date brwosers, FF Chrome and even IE does not work. i do get the login but as soon as i type the local vspheretest.local\administrator + PW i get a clock and default blue screen and hangs that way. on all 3 browsers. even chrome does say "download failed". does anyone knows or can give direction to troubleshoot ??
There appears to be no automated way to add an identity source which could be achieved in previous versions.
Since there is is no longer a sso-add-native-ad-idp.sh on a VCSA appliance.
What now is the API/CLI replacement for this in python/shell?
upgrade to esxi 6.71u seems to have an issue doing it via VUM. it complains that patches are unable to be downlaoded.
Hi William, can you add the links for the vSAN HCL and vSAN catalogue for vSAN health offline installations?
