Update sequence for vSphere 6.0 and its compatible VMware products

Following our technical discussion regarding upgrade VMware environments, actually I already wrote about this topic in different thread  in this blog. But, I would like to emphasise again by using another KB from VMware. VMware has made available certain releases to address critical issues and architectural changes for several products to allow for continued interoperability:

  • vCloud Connector (vCC)
  • vCloud Director (vCD)
  • vCloud Networking and Security (VCNS, formerly vShield Manager)
  • VMware Horizon View
  • VMware NSX for vSphere (NSX Manager)
  • vCenter Operations Manager (vCOPs)
  • vCenter Server / vCenter Server Appliance
  • vCenter Infrastructure Navigator (VIN)
  • vCenter Site Recovery Manager (SRM)
  • vCenter Update Manager (VUM)
  • vRealize Automation Center (vRA, formerly known as vCloud Automation Center)
  • vRealize Automation Application Services (vRAS, formerly vSphere AppDirector)
  • vRealize Business, IT Cost Management (ITBM, formerly VMware IT Business Management)

  • vRealize Hyperic
  • vRealize Log Insight (vRLI)
  • vRealize Operations Manager (vROPs, formerly known as vCenter Operations Manager, vCOPs)
  • vRealize Orchestrator (vRO, formerly vCenter Orchestrator)
