Upgrading to VMware Aria Suite Lifecycle 8.12
Current version of vRSLCM in my lab is of version 8.10 PSPACK 9.
Goal is to upgrade to version 8.12. As we all know from this version onwards vRSLCM will now be refferred as VMware Aria Suite Lifecycle
I have mapped updaterepo iso on the vRSLCM appliance using datastore iso option
Login into vRSLCM and then click on check for upgrade
Remember to take a snapshot without fail before attempting an upgrade
Here you go there's my update
There's a product pane which tells you to acknowledge that necessary prerequisites have taken place , accept to move forward
There are 6 validations performed
During this phase check
/var/log/vrlcm/vmware_vrlcm.log /opt/vmware/var/log/vami/updatecli.log /opt/vmware/bootstrap/postupdate.log
After few minutes , here you go , the all nee VMware Aria Suite Lifecycle 8.12
Here's the home page
Remember , I just upgraded by vRSLCM and once done , as expected all my existing products would start displaying the new names. Unless i upgrade the product, on the product end it would still show the old branding.
That's the system settings
This concludes uprgade of vRSLCM to what now we call VMware Aria Suite Lifecycle 8.12
