Dear VMware Experts,

I am planning updating my vCSA v6.0.0.10000 build 3018521 to the latest built U2 using VAMI.

Q1) should I update first to U1b or can I jump directly to U2?

Q2) Is it safe to update the vCenter via VAMI or should i use the CLI/SSH?

Q3) As per VMware’s recommended update sequence the vCenter should
       be updated first and following the ESXis and the VMware Tools.
       Unfortunately I have updated the ESXi and Vmware Tools already.
       Will I face any problem updating my vCenter now?

Thanks in advance,
Mamelas

Go straight to U2.

Q2) Is it safe to update the vCenter via VAMI or should i use the CLI/SSH?

Very safe, just make sure you take a CLONE/BACKUP before you make any changes, and should it go wrong, you can rollback to your backup.

Q3) As per VMware’s recommended update sequence the vCenter should
       be updated first and following the ESXis and the VMware Tools.

None.
