VMware products might be affected during VirtualCenter upgrade (1007128)


If left running, some VMware products might experience data inconsistency during a VirtualCenter upgrade. This can potentially lead to corrupted databases or inability to effectively manage your VMware environment.


Stop the processes of the following VMware Products before upgrading VirtualCenter: 
  • VMware Virtual Desktop Manager (VDM)
  • VMware Lab Manager
  • VMware Stage Manager
It is also advisable to stop/pause any tasks utilizing VirtualCenter at the time of the upgrade, such as Physical to Virtual conversions using VMware Converter.
For instructions on stopping services/processes, refer to the documentation for your specific product.
