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.

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.

None.

I have executed the update through VAMI and all components were updated successfully.
