升级vCSA(vCenter Server Appliance) 6.5 到6.7u3 或者6.7u3n 遇到的问题

vCSA(vCenter Server Appliance)爆出漏洞, 赶紧给vCSA升级.

选择了在线升级的方式,直接登录vCSA VAMI平台(注意这里要用root登录VAMI平台,不能用一般用户[email protected]之类的),点击update,选择了最新的vCenter版本,确出来下面的错误:

Appliance (OS) root password is expired or is going to expire soon. Please change the root password before installing an update

然后在VAMI平台里面更新root password, 也报下面的错误:

Could not set the password

如果你用command  chage -l root的话,也报下面的错误:

这是因为VAMI是无法修改过期的root密码的,你只能用CLI的方式, SSH登录vCSA 然后修改.

步骤:

  1. 在VAMI平台里面enable SSH,然后用root连接上vCSA
  2. 运行下面的commands:
shell.set --enabled true
shell
passwd

3. 确认root密码被修改了:

chage -l root

4.可以设置root从不过期:

chage -I -1 -m 0 -M 99999 -E -1 root

5. 重新在VAMI里面升级

注意,从7.0U1和6.7P03开始,可以用SSO administrator登录VAMI,然后重设root密码
