Finally vSphere 6.7U1 is here!

I have been waiting for this update and finally is here. This update supposed to have fully supported HTML5 client, however, I have read several comments of people claiming that is not entirely true and this, is not mentioned in the release notes. I haven't had the chance to update my environment, so I can’t tell yet… I’d be disappointed if it is true, this is the primary reason that I (and almost sure that everyone) have been waiting for this update.

Take a look at:


From the VMware blog’s post, referenced before, I want to quote the following highlights:

In This Article:


  • vCenter High Availability (VCHA)
    • We redesigned VCHA workflows to combine the Basic and Advanced configuration workflows. This streamlines the user experience and eliminates the need for manual intervention of some deployments.
  • Search Experience
    • We revamped the search experience. In this version of the vSphere Client, you can now search for objects with a string and filter the search results based on Tags/Custom attributes. You can also filter the object lists in the search even further. For instance, you can filter on the power state of the VMs etc., You can save your searches and revisit them later.
  • Performance Charts
    • You can pop the performance charts into a separate tab and zoom in on a specific time in the chart. We also added overview performance charts for datacenters and clusters.
  • Dark Theme
    • Dark theme has been one of the most requested features for the vSphere Client so we’re introducing a Dark mode setting. Support for the Dark theme is available for all core vSphere Client functionality and implementation for vSphere Client plugins is in progress.
  • Alarm Definitions
    • We greatly simplified the way you define new alarms, particularly in how you create rules for trigger conditions.

Let’s highlight a couple of features which are available only in the vSphere Client.

  • In-product Feedback Tool
    • We wanted to make it very easy for you to give us feedback so we included an In-product feedback tool in the vSphere Client. After you login to the vSphere Client, notice the smile icon on the top right corner. You can click the icon to send feedback as a free-form text. You also have an option to capture a screenshot to include in the feedback, annotate, and obfuscate any private information in the captured screenshot. Optionally, you can include your email address so that we can reach out to you to follow-up on your feedback.
  • Dashboard
    • The home page of vSphere Client is a dashboard that displays resource utilization information (CPU, Memory and Storage), the number of VMs, hosts, a list of objects with critical alerts, and a list of installed plugins that vCenter finds in the environment.


Honestly, I am interested in trying the “Dark Theme,” it is boring working with the same stuff all the time, even though the HTML5 client is cool enough, this dark theme looks even sexier, for the other features. Eventually, I’ll get there.

Soon, I’ll update my infrastructure and almost sure I’ll write about it.
