Hi experts

I'm following Andrews' helpful article HOW TO: Upgrade from vCenter Server Appliance (VCSA) 5.5 to 6.0

Everything validated ok and the migration seemd to be progressing until I recevied these errors:

Google gave me this KB Article which seems to describe the issue.  However, the  vCenter Single Sign-On user administrator@vsphere.local used in this system has an alpha numeric password (no special characters) which complies with the supported passwords as described here

Any one have this before and/or know how to resolve?

thanks
Mark

Upgrades always fail 50% of the time, and it's far better to install from scratch, e.g. create a new vCenter 6.0 Appliance install.

Hi Andrew

Thanks for coming back to me.

If I install a new VCSA 6.0, can I then migrate the data from the current VCSA5.5 to the new one?

Thanks

No. But what data do you want to migrate ?

I have been thinking about it while waiting for your rely and 'what data' is right. I don't need anything from the old VCSA as I just need to add my hosts to the new VCSA and go from there.


Thanks for your help!

That's correct, often new server is better.
