Symptoms

When you upgrade from VMware vCloud Networking and Security 5.5.x to VMware NSX for vSphere 6.2.0:
  • The uplink port name information is missing from the tables
  • When you run the REST API call command, the <uplinkPortName> tab has not value in it

    GET https://VSM_IP/api/2.0/vdn/switches
  • The logical router interfaces are missing

Note: This issue only occurs when upgrading to VMware NSX for vSphere 6.2.0. This issue does not manifest when upgrading to VMware NSX for vSphere 6.2.1 and later.

Resolution

When you run the REST API call command, you see output similar to:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<vdsContexts>
   <vdsContext>
      <switch>
         <objectId>dvs-22</objectId>
      <objectTypeName>VmwareDistributedVirtualSwitch</objectTypeName>
         <vsmUuid>4236F6CA-3B1A-56BE-4B55-1EF82B8CA12D</vsmUuid>
         <revision>2</revision>
         <type>
            <typeName>VmwareDistributedVirtualSwitch</typeName>
         </type>
         <name>1-vds-20</name>
         <scope>
            <id>datacenter-3</id>
            <objectTypeName>Datacenter</objectTypeName>
            <name>datacenter-1</name>
         </scope>
         <clientHandle />
         <extendedAttributes />
      </switch>
      <mtu>1600</mtu>
      <teaming>FAILOVER_ORDER</teaming>
      <uplinkPortName>uplink2</uplinkPortName>
      <promiscuousMode>false</promiscuousMode>
   </vdsContext>
</vdsContexts>


If the output of this command contains at least one uplink port name for each vSphere Distributed Switch, you can proceed with the upgrade. If the uplink port name is missing from the output, the database must be populated.
