Update VCSA 6.5

To update your VCSA follow the steps below. The pictures maybe show different version numbers, but I’ve tested it with the listed versions.

 

Preparation:

  • Check all dependencies! Go to VMware Product Interoperability Matrices and check for example the Interoperability of VMware NSX and vCenter. Maybe you need one interim step for your update/upgrade.

Installation:

If your appliance don’t have a connection to the internet you will have to download the FullPatch from VMware.

  • Select VC and 6.5.0
  • Select the FP file for the appliance (example)
    • VCSA 6.5 Update 1e (VMware-vCenter-Server-Appliance-6.5.0.14000-7515524-patch-FP.iso)
  • Mount the ISO to you vCenter Server Appliance
  • Select Check CDROM instead of Repository in my guide.

With internet connection follow these few steps

  • Login to the appliance management (VAMI) https://your.vcenter.appliance:5480
  • Go to Update and click on Check Updates and then Check Repository (or CDROM for those who install from ISO)
  • After that the Appliance should show you the new update. Click on Install Update and then Install All Updates
  • Accept the License Agreement and click Install
  • [optional] Join or leave the CEIP (Customer Experience Improvement Program) and click on Install
  • After that the update will run several minutes.
  • The last step you have to do is to reboot the appliance
  • Go to the Summary Tab and click on Reboot

  • After initialization the vCenter Server appliance is back online and ready for work
  • If you have select that root password doesn’t expire you have to set this again. Every update activates the expiration of root.
    UPDATE: With vCenter Server Update 1d / Update 1e / Update 1f the root expiration was still disabled after the update.
    Maybe VMware now check the setting and keeps it. But I would recommend to check it after every update

Veeam released Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 3 and Veeam ONE 9.5 Update 3

On Dec 18th Veeam released the Update 3 of Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 and Veeam One 9.5.

Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 3 has many new features. I will outline my favorites

  • Built-in agent management. Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows and Veeam Agent for Linux can now be deployed and managed directly from the Veeam Backup & Replication console, adding support for physical and cloud workloads protection.
  • VMDK resize operation will no longer result in resetting CBT data for all virtual machine disks, but rather for the resized disk only.
  • Data location tagging. Ensure data sovereignty compliance required by various regulations, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), by tagging production infrastructure and backup infrastructure objects with locations.

Full Release Notes and Downloads can be found following the links

I’ve written down the few update steps for both in this article.
