When upgrading vRealize Operations Manager, you might need to use a two-step upgrade sequence. See the following list for details on upgrade approaches for different versions:
- From version 6.0 or 6.1, first upgrade to version 6.3.1, and then upgrade to version 6.7.
- From version 6.2 or 6.2.1 with EPOPs installed on the source version, upgrade to version 6.3.1, and then upgrade to version 6.7.
- From version 6.2 or 6.2.1 without EPOPs installed, or any of versions 6.3, 6.3.1, 6.4, 6.5, 6.6, or 6.6.1, directly upgrade to version 6.7.
Before version upgrade, we need to prepare the two vROps upgrade package.
Then we login into vROps Administration page and take the cluster offline.
When the cluster service is offline, we can start the software upgrade.
Go to Software upgrade, click “Install A Software Update” button.
Browse and upload the vRealize_Operations_Manager-VA-OS-126.96.36.19983616.pak
When OS upgrade is completed successfully, the status shows “Completed”.
Then we can go to 2nd upgrade phase, browse and upload vRealize_Operations_Manager-VA-188.8.131.5283616.pak. It will restart the cluster when the upgrade is completed.
When vROps upgrade is completed successfully, the status shows “Completed”.
We can see the new dashboard when we login vROps again.
