Upgrade to 8.0.100

Hi guys, is someone upgraded to 8?

If yes, everything's good during upgrade? Is it pretty stable?

Everything stable, no errors, no problems itself with images, it depends on the existing cluster health, but at all the procedure runs smooth. With new update there is a ton of underline hardware firmware updates for 15G like idrac, bios, disk firmwares, network adapters, ISM, it just takes time. Im running on different 4node, 6node and stretched cluster environments, it takes 7-10 hours for my scenario, having more than 50VMs beeing migrated on 10G network.

Thank you for the reply, I go ahead with the upgrade, I've 6 nodes on stretched cluster (3+3) with 60 Vm's.

Generally take 1 hour per host but it's my first major Vsphere upgrade with Vxrail.

I recommend that you remove each VM's dependency on ISO attached, to have the mgmt and VM network continued on the secondary site for your case with stretched cluster, make sure that the precheck is with all Green components, not any warning or error, and the procedure will it's going very well, trust me. In the meantime, prepare the Licensing to move to vSphere 8, and ensure that the cluster with 2 FDs has DRS enabled during the update process. I wish you luck.

I'm not lucky, the upgrade stuck for hours at 37%, after deploy the temp Vcenter.

I "retry the update", but stuck again at the same point.

It's time to open a support case, the fourth case regarding upgrade since January 2021!

Did you have to replace the TPMs with 2.0? If so, how did that go?
