The Platform Services Controller appliance is upgraded. The old Platform Services Controller appliance is powered off and the new appliance starts.
What to do next
If the old Platform Services Controller appliance uses a non-ephemeral distributed virtual port group, to preserve the port group setting, you can manually connect the new appliance to the original non-ephemeral distributed virtual port group. For information about configuring virtual machine networking on a vSphere distributed switch, see vSphere Networking.
If the Platform Services Controller appliance replicates the infrastructure data with other Platform Services Controller instances, you must upgrade all Platform Services Controller instances in the vCenter Single Sign-On domain to the same version.
