People,

How can I export the existing VCSA v5.5 (VMware VCenter appliance) configuration so that I can import it to VCSA 6.0 ?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Chala,

It doesn't mention about exporting the current VCSA settings and performance data to the new appliance.

I've uploaded the file VMware-VCSA-all-6.0.0-4191361.iso to my VMFS data store, but I cannot deploy it as VCSA .OVF ?

There is no direct method to import and export if you have VDS.  Work around is mentioned in the URL.  Also check the comments there.  OVAs can be deployed from your client desktop and can't be done by uploading ISO.
