This section describes how to upgrade VMware Cloud Director from to 10.1.2.


  • Verify that you have superuser credentials for the servers in your VMware Cloud Director server group.

  • Verify that the VMware Cloud Director database, vSphere components, and the NSX components are compatible with the new version of VMware Cloud Director.

  • Verify that all ESXi hosts are activated. Starting with VMware Cloud Director 9.5, deactivated ESXi hosts are unsupported.
