The upgrade pre-check utility validates that your Cloud Foundation system is ready for an upgrade.

You manually trigger the pre-check utility directly in the SDDC Manager Dashboard or by logging into the SDDC Manager VM and running a command in the CLI.

Note: It is recommended that you run both checks before upgrading.
The upgrade pre-check utility validates the following components of your Cloud Foundation system:
  • SDDC Manager
  • Hardware Management Services (HMS)
  • Lifecycle Management (LCM)
  • Platform Services Controller
  • vCenter Server
  • ESXi
  • vSAN
  • Bring-Up
  • All racks
