To upgrade to NSX 6.2.x, you must upgrade the vCloud Networking and Security components in the order in which they are documented in this guide.
vCloud Networking and Security components must be upgraded in the following order:
vShield Manager to NSX Manager
Deploy NSX Controller Cluster - optional, required for logical (distributed) routers and changing control plane mode to hybrid or unicast
Upgrade Clusters and Hosts
Update Transport Zone - optional, if NSX Controller cluster is deployed, can change control plane mode to hybrid or unicast
vShield App to NSX Distributed Firewall
vShield Edge to NSX Edge
vShield Endpoint to NSX Guest Introspection
The upgrade process is managed by the vShield Manager. If the upgrade of a component fails or is interrupted and you need to repeat or restart the upgrade, the process begins from the point at which it stopped; it does not start over from the beginning.
The upgrade status is updated for each node and at the cluster level.
