Phew! A lot to do the last weeks. Found a little time to upgrade our NSX installation from 6.4.0 to 6.4.1. But there was no time to bring it to the blog :(
Now I can see a small light at the end of the tunnel and could write it down :)
Back in May VMware released the new version of NSX in version 6.4.1. If you plan to upgrade your installation, I’ve written the steps to complete it.
Yesterday Gostev from Veeam reported that Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 3a is RTM.
If you are a NSX customer one of the biggest show stopper for upgrading to vSphere 6.7 was that NSX 6.4.0 only was supported up to vSphere 6.5. Now with the availability of NSX 6.4.1 this is gone. But this is not the only good news. NSX 6.4.1 includes many new features.

VMware released a new update for the vCenter. The Update mainly focuses fixing the Spectre and Meltdown issue.
For more information you can find the release notes here: vCenter 6.5 Update 1e
Version: vCenter Server 6.5 Update 1e (184.108.40.20600)
How to update the VCSA can be found here: Update VCSA 6.5
After upgrading my production vCSA to 6.5 Update 1d a few days ago the complete handling of the vCenter is quite good. The HTML5 Client runs very good, but don’t have all features, so the Java-based Web Client must do some of the work.
One very disturbing thing is the “Your password will expire in xx days”-Message everytime you log in.
But it doesn’t have to. You can configure the time before the reminder appears.
