Upgrading the vSphere version

If you are using the official image template for the dedicated hypervisor, please follow the procedure below to migrate from vSphere 6.0 to vSphere 6.5 / 6.7.

1. Upgrade of vCenter Server 6.0

Before upgrading vSphere ESXi, you need to upgrade vCenter Server. The managed vSphere ESXi must be less than or equal to the version of vCenter Server (Management Server).
You can use our official image template, or you can download it directly from the Web site of VMware.
