Revision Description
02 APR 2021 VMware has rebranded the My VMware portal as VMware Customer Connect. We updated the vCenter Server Upgrade documentation to reflect this name change.
10 AUG 2020 At VMware, we value inclusion. To foster this principle within our customer, partner, and internal community, we are replacing some of the terminology in our content. We have updated this guide to remove instances of non-inclusive language.
30 JUN 2020 Support for Internet Explorer was removed as a supported web browser for use with the vSphere Client. See vSphere Client Software Requirements.
29 APR 2020 Added the prerequisite that, when upgrading or migrating vCenter Server, you must create a backup of the existing vCenter Server or Platform Services Controller nodes in your environment. You can use the backup as a precaution in case there is a failure during the deployment process. See Prerequisites for Upgrading the vCenter Server Appliance or Platform Services Controller Appliance and Prerequisites for Migrating vCenter Server and Platform Services Controller.

The procedure by which you patch a vCenter Server Appliance configured in a vCenter High Availability (HA) cluster has changed. You must verify that patching a vCenter HA configuration is supported for your patch version of vCenter Server. See Patch a vCenter High Availability Environment.
