To upgrade to the latest version, you need to download the vRealize_Operations_Manager-VA-OS-6
After we log into the admin console, we are going to click Software Updates under the Administration panel.
The first step is to point our browser to the upgrade PAK file we downloaded. I did not check Install the PAK
file even if it is already installed (because it isn't) and I didn't select Reset out-of-the-box content, overwriting to a new version provided by this update. Note, user modifications to out-of-the-box Alerts, Symptoms, Recommentations and Policies will be overwritten.
After you click Upload, you will see the PAK file progress bar.
When the upload is completed, it provides you a warning letting you know that after the installation is completed it will restart the
vRealize Operations Manager cluster. Click Next to proceed.
Carefully read every line of the EULA, then check I accept the terms of this agreement.
The installation will proceed, after it is completed it will reboot the
vRealize Operations Manager cluster.
At this point, the
vRealize Operation Manager appliance has been reconfigured and restarted. Logging back into the admin console, we notice the version number is now 188.8.131.5245569.
It took me about 25 minutes to complete the upgrade.
