    • Announcing vSphere 6.7 Update 2, vSphere Platinum updates, and vSphere ROBO Enterprise

      I am excited to share that today we are announcing the VMware vSphere 6.7 Update 2 release, with key enhancements that will deliver an efficient and more secure hybrid cloud platform to our customers. We are also announcing the new vSphere Remote Office Branch Office Enterprise edition, as well as updates going specifically into vSphere Platinum edition.

    While not as monumental an upgrade as the arrival of 100% feature parity in HTML5 in October 2018's 6.7 Update1, Update 2 seems to have some great new additions as well. I strongly ncourage you to read the announcement article above in its entirety, then check out Vladan's excellent overview here too. Here's an excerpt:

    VMware is announcing vSphere 6.7 Update 2 after several months of the previous release, vSphere 6.7 U1. The U2 not only fixes bugs but brings some significant improvements and support for Windows Server 2019 with VM hardware version 15.

    I'm planning to test these bits in my home lab Bundle as soon as they become GA (Generally Available). We don't yet have a solid release date or release notes, and I will update this article once more is known.

    I encountered some very minor issues going to 6.7 Update 1, explained in my vSphere 6.7 Update 1 Released article, and I'm expecting this upgrade to be even smoother.

    ESXi 6.7x to 6.7 Update 2

    Once we're done upgrading our VCSA appliances, we'll be able to use VUM to proceed with upgrading your ESXi hosts. If you'd prefer the ESXCLI method instead, my article will also be updated accordingly once 6.7U2 (6.7 U2) actually arrives:
