After you complete the upgrade of the vSphere management components, perform a final update of the configuration of vCenter Server and ESXi according to the objectives and deployment guidelines of this validated design.

What to do next

After you enable Sparse Swap on vSAN, power off and then power on all management virtual machines to enforce the new, thin-provisioned swap file creation.

Power cycle the virtual machines in groups per layer during separate maintenance windows. For more information about powering off and powering on the VMware Validated Design SDDC management components, see SDDC Startup and Shutdown in the VMware Validated Design Backup and Restore documentation.
