How to Upgrade ESX Hosts to vSphere 6.7

By Max Kelley|

November 12, 2018

While we've been using and testing vSphere 6.7 for a while now, we're happy to announce we officially support this latest release from VMware, which includes support for Apple File System (APFS) and macOS Mojave. We know our customers will be excited to use the new macOS along with the other great features that come with vSphere 6.7. In addition to the new features, vSphere 6.7 also comes with new infrastructure requirements to ensure full supportability from VMware. Click here to learn more about these infrastructure changes.

Ready to move to vSphere 6.7? We've put together a step-by-step guide to walk you through the process, available on our Knowledge Base:

A few things to keep in mind before starting the upgrade process: Only Mac Pros and HP blades Gen8 and above are supported for this upgrade. vSphere 6.7 is not officially supported on Xserve or Mac mini hardware. The process requires a VCSA appliance running version 6.7. If you are running on an older VCSA version, please request an upgrade through a support ticket before attempting this process. Standalone ESXi hosts cannot follow this process.
