Upgrading from VCSA 6.7 to VCSA 6.7 U1

In This Article:


There are several ways to update the vCenter Appliance, but the easiest and fastest option is via the VMware Appliance Management. The primary requirement for this is to have internet access in the VCSA machine; this is essential unless you have/need an ultra-secure and isolated environment.


To update VCSA to 6.7 U1, follow the steps below:

  1. Access to VMware Appliance Management: https://IP_or_FQDN:5480. Input root user and password.
