The years of using vRealize Log Insight with the “Free for 25 OSI license” are over. All new versions of vRealize Log Insight have to be licensed with purchased licenses. But with the release of vCenter Server 6.7 there is one thing more you have to look at.
To update your VCSA follow the steps below. The pictures maybe show different version numbers, but I’ve tested it with the listed versions.
- VCSA 6.7.0 (220.127.116.1100 Build 8217866)
- VCSA 6.7.0a (18.104.22.16800 Build 8546234)
- VCSA 6.7.0b (22.214.171.12400 Build 8832884)
- VCSA 6.7.0c (126.96.36.19900 Build 9232925)
This week VMware released the Update b for VCSA 6.7.0.
With this update VMware fixes a security issue regarding the hypervisor-assisted guest mitigation of CVE-2018-3639 for guest operating systems

The last days VCSA 6.7.0a gets GA. In this post I want to show the upgrade from VCSA 6.5 U1 to VCSA 6.7.0 (not a). In my other post (Update VCSA 6.7) I’ve made the update from 6.7.0 to 6.7.0a.
First thing to know is, there is no support to upgrade from 6.5 U2 to 6.7.0! So, if you are planning to update your existing VCSA 6.5 to Update 2 you have to wait for the (maybe) VCSA 6.7 Update 1 to migrate to 6.7.
For example there is also no support from Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 3 for vSphere 6.7 (www.veeam.com) Support will come with the next update.
(26thJun18 Veeam B& R 9.5 Update 3a is availiable)
VMware has made an KB article with important information before upgrade (kb.vmware.com)
Now lets start with the upgrade
This week VMware released the Update 1g for vCenter Server.
With this update VMware fixes two issues.
First it provides a part of the hypervisor-assisted guest mitigation (CVE-2017-5715) and second it fixes an issue with putting ESXi hosts into an empty EVC Cluster.
