vRealize Operations Upgrade
With the recent release of vRealize Operations (vROps) version 6.5 I thought I would make a quick post on the order in which the upgrade .PAK files are to be applied in existing deployments. Use the upgrade steps below if you are running vROps version 6.2 or newer:
- To apply the updates you will need to open the “admin” portal for vROps: https://xxx.xxx.x.xxx/admin/
- Download and deploy the Virtual Appliance OS upgrade OVA file with the following naming convention: vRealize_Operations_Manager-VA-OS-xxx.pak.
- Next download and deploy Virtual Appliance upgrade: vRealize_Operations_Manager-VA-xxx.pak.
*Customers upgrading older versions of vRealize Operations Manager (6.0.x or 6.1) must use a two-step upgrade: They must first upgrade to vRealize Operations Manager 6.3 and then upgrade to vRealize Operations Manager 6.5.
There are some nice additions included in this update, in particular access to Log Insight from within the vROps UI is my personal favorite. vRealize Business is also accessible from within the UI as well.
