  5. 5. 5 PSC & vCenter Server “Platform Services Controller (PSC) is a component of the VMware Cloud Infrastructure Suite. PSC deals with identity management for administrators and applications that interact with the vSphere platform” Platform Services controller provides the following services:  VMware Appliance Management Service – Appliance Only  VMware License Service  VMware Component Manager  VMware Identity Management Service  VMware HTTP Reverse Proxy  VMware Service Control Agent  VMware Security Token Service  VMware Common Logging Service  VMware Syslog Health Service  VMware Authentication Framework  VMware Certificate Service  VMware Directory Service
  6. 6. 6 Platform Services Controller Continued  Placement of the PSC is important!  Embedded works well for small environments  PSC can be migrated the following ways (vSphere 6.0 U1): • Internal to External • External to External within a site • External to External across sites  You CANNOT migrate from an external PSC to an embedded PSC
  7. 7. 7 vCenter Server Upgrade Windows vCenter  Connect the vCenter 6 ISO  2 Options: • Simple Install • Install each component manually  Simple – all features on the same box  Use manual to break up features to different servers vCenter Server Appliance  VCSA 5.1 U3 or VCSA 5.5+  Client Integration Plug In  Launch the Installer  Point to the existing vCSA  Enter appliance size, datastore, and network information  Finish wizard and verify completion in the console session
  8. 8. 8 vSphere Replication & Site Recovery Manager vSphere Replication • Must be upgraded before SRM • Attach the ISO to the appliance • Connect to the VAMI interface via web browser • Verify “Use CDROM Updates” • Scan for updates, Install, Reboot • Clear Browser Cache – Log back in • Configure the connection to Lookup Services & SSO • Save and Restart services Site Recovery Manager • Upgrade the protected site first • Download the .exe from VMware • Follow the Install Wizard • Enter PSC & SSO info • Verify vCenter & vCenter Extension info • Verify SRM Database info • Verify remote vCenter IP • Log out of the web client, clear cache, and log back in to view upgraded SRM plugin
  9. 9. 9 VUM & ESXi Host Upgrading Update Manager  Now available in the Web Client • Plugin will appear after upgrade to VUM 6.0  Package available on the vCenter ISO  Take sizing into consideration if deploying Update Manager Download Service Host Upgrade  Same as before! • Download updates • Scan hosts • Remediate
  10. 10. 10 Other VMware Components • vRealize Automation, Config Manager, Business Manager • vCloud Director, Networking & Security • NSX Manager & Controllers • View Composer & Connection Server
  11. 11. 11 Other Components Continued
  12. 12. 12 Bugs Encountered • vSphere Replication from 5.8 failed • Per VMware support, upgrading to 6.0/6.1 is “very buggy” • Embedded database fails to upgrade – New parameters in the 6.0+ DB • FIX: Rebuild vSphere Replication & Site Recovery Manager environment • Hosts Disappear from the Web Client Hosts & Clusters View • Hosts vanish after refreshing web client or trying to view host information • Performance / services are not affected • FIX: Stop Web Services, Clear the Serenity Database • C:ProgramdatavmwarevCenterServerdatavSphere Web ClientSerentiyDBSerentiy • Unable to load OVF Templates via the Web Client After Upgrade • “Unable to verify that the OVF can be uploaded” & “Unable to connect to the host” • Issue unknown by VMware Support • FIX: Disable IPv6 on the Host? • FIX: Rebuild vCenter
  13. 13. 13 Tips & Recommendations • Release notes are your friend! • Leave yourself an out • Snapshots are also your friend • However, do not forget to delete your friendly snapshot afterwards • Prepare for the upgrade: • Have a check list laid out of each component in the order you need to upgrade • Stage the update files • Passwords, IPs, Database locations, etc…
