Part IV - Post-upgrade tasks Child TopicsDecommission external VMware Platform Service ControllersDecommission external VMware Platform Service Controllers (PSCs) after converging VMware vCenter upgrades with external VMware PSC. Unregister external VMware PSC services from VMware vCenter after converging to embedded VMware PSC during upgrade to vSphere 7.0. Change legacy boot mode to UEFI (optional)Create a boot policy and attach to the existing service profile. Install the VMware Enhanced Authentication plug-inInstall the VMware Enhanced Authentication plug-in. Register the solution in VMware vCenter Server after the upgrade or migration After the certificate is regenerated during the upgrade or migration, register a previously registered solution and any third-party client plug-in packages with VMware vCenter Server. Verify VMware vCenter Server ApplianceEnsure that the VMware vCenter Server components are upgraded correctly. Verify compliance with the RCMVerify that the upgraded components match the versions that are listed in the RCM. Install VMware vCenter Server root certificates on the web browser Verify that root certificates are installed. If not, follow the steps to install them. Verify VMware ESXi advanced settingsVerify that the NFS settings are configured for optimal Converged System performance. Create Cisco UCS adapter settingsReview and verify that the Ethernet Adapter policy and Virtual Machine Queue (VMQ) connection policies are configured in the Cisco UCS Manager using standard practices. Verify that the service profiles are updated. Create VMQ policies and apply them to the Ethernet adapters. Create the VMQ connection configuration settingsVerify that the VMQ policies exist. If not, create them using the steps in this procedure. Assign a virtualization preference to a vNICAssign the VMQ connection policy to a vNIC. Review system security Ensure that the VxBlock System adheres to established security settings. Remove the management VMs Power off and remove the VMs that are no longer needed. Validate folders for AMP-VXValidate that the folder hierarchy is created for the placement of the VMs for the AMP-VX.
