Sorry for the long delay since my last blog post – busy times, but with lots of vSphere. :) Today, I did an upgrade of a standalone vCenter Server Appliance at one of my healthcare customers. The vCenter was on 6.0 U3 and I had to upgrade it to 6.7 U2. It was only a small deployment with three hosts, so nothing fancy. And as with in many other vSphere upgrades, I came across this warning message:
ning User vdcs does not have the expected uid 1006
Resolution Please refer to the corresponding KB article.
I saw this message multiple times, but in the past, there was no KB article about this, only a VMTN thread. And this thread mentioned, that you can safely ignore this message, if you don’t use a Content Library. Confirmation enough to proceed with the upgrade. :)
Meanwhile, there is a KB article:
This is a statement from the KB article:
Note: You can safely ignore this message if you are not using Content Library Service before the upgrade, or using it only for libraries not backed by NFS storage.
Currently, I don’t have cusomters with NFS backed Content Libraries, but if you do, you might want to take a look at it. Especially if you have done an upgrade from 6.0 to 6.5 or 6.7 and you want to start using Content Libraries now.
