VMFS 6 Upgrade

We have tested our new demo Dell EMC Unity 400F storage and we conneceted this test to our vSphere 6.5 test. 2 in 1 solution I really like it 🙂

I red White Pepaer about vSphere 6.5 Storage, and i find in this article, VMware introduce new VMFS. I want upgrade our VMFS version to latest version. Like always i have started search upgrade option, but i couldn’t find it.

I started read about whats new vSphere 6.5 Storage, and i find this in VMware Document Center: https://pubs.vmware.com/vsphere-65/topic/com.vmware.vsphere.storage.doc/GUID-7552DAD4-1809-4687-B46E-ED9BB42CE277.html

End of this article I recognize why I couldn’t find any upgrade button 🙂

“Upgrade. After you upgrade your ESXi hosts to version 6.5, you can continue using any existing VMFS5 datastores. To take advantage of VMFS6 features, create a VMFS6 datastore and migrate virtual machines from the VMFS5 datastore to VMFS6 datastore. You cannot upgrade the VMFS5 datastore to VMFS6.”
