      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.

    Today, vSphere 6.7 Update 2 became generally available!

    Download

    As always, you'll want to read the VMware vCenter Server 6.7 Update 2 Release Notes and ESXi 6.7 Update 2 release notes before considering an upgrade, then

    1. Download the VCSA 6.7 Update 2 appliance ISO (if you don't already have 6.7 running)
    2. Download the ESXi 6.7 Update 2 ESXi ISO (6.7U2, aka, 6.7 U2)

    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 to VCSA 6.7 Update 2 fromnany prior 6.7 using the built-in VAMI UI, you'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:
