It is time to upgrade vROps to the newest version. You can perform in-place upgrade from any 8.x version. I strongly recommend to run per-upgrade check.
To perform upgrade you will need to :
- Download pre-check tool
- Download one of 3 upgrade packs:
- To upgrade from vRealize Operations 7.5 to vRealize Operations 8.5, you must download and apply the vRealize Operations Manager – Virtual Appliance upgrade for 7.5 .pak file.
- To upgrade from vRealize Operations 8.0, 8.0.1, 8.1, 8.1.1, 8.2, or 8.3 to 8.5 you must download and apply the vRealize Operations Manager – Virtual Appliance upgrade for 8.0.x, 8.1.x, 8.2 and 8.3 .pak file.
- To upgrade from vRealize Operations 8.4 to 8.5, you must download and apply the vRealize Operations Manager – Virtual Appliance upgrade for 8.4 .pak file
NOTE: Upgrading to vRealize Operations 8.5, resets out-of-the-box content as part of the software upgrade process even if the Reset Default Content button is unchecked during the upgrade. This implies that the user modifications made to default content such as alert definitions, symptom definitions, recommendations, policies, views, dashboards, widgets, and reports are overwritten. You need to clone or backup the content before you upgrade to vRealize Operations 8.5.
