Warning: vCSA 6.7 to 7.0 Upgrade via VAMI

Just a quick post if like me you’ve gone to patch vCenter via VAMI/port 5480 and found this:

That’s right! A vCenter 6.7 system being presented a 7.0 update, it’s worth highlighting if you want proof you can’t patch to 7.0 from 6.7 this way, run the pre-update checks, it’ll tell you that this isn’t compatible. Don’t try it if you don’t want a bad day, it shouldn’t let you proceed but the fact it’s passed the compatibility matrix to be presented in the first place is a concern.

This is a bug within 6.7.0.45000 and by patching to 6.7.0.45100 it will no longer propose a 7.0 update this way.
