As this is an error that affected me now at multiple customer installations, it is time for a blog 🙂
After upgrading a site to 6.5 U1 I noticed several issues:
- The vAPI Endpoint status changed to “yellow”
- The Content Library service would not start
The only resolve I found within the VMware KB was “restart the services.
As I didn’t help, I searched along and found VMware KB 2151085 with the cause of the error
The ts-config.properties file is deployed with the noreplace option. With this option, the ts-config.properties will no longer be overwritten, instead it is saved with the extension .rpmnew.
This is a known issue seen with several upgrade paths to vSphere 6.5 Update 1. Not all upgrade paths are affected, VMware is investigating affected paths this article will be updated once confirmed.
