Pre-Requisite


Ensure vRSLCM 8.10 PSPACK 1 is implemented


Once done , download / upload the product binary which will enable you to upgrade vRLI to 8.10


vRSLCM 8.10 PSPACK 1 also allows you to upgrade vRNI to 6.8 , we will discuss that in the next blog


Click here for vRSLCM 8.10 PSPACK 1 Release Notes

Submit the request


It's a single node vRealize LogInsight environment , hence there are 8 stages. Let's discuss each one of them in detail





Stage:1  Shutting Down Guest OS

Stage:2 Creating Node Snapshot

Stage:3 Power On VM

Stage:4 vrlihealthcheck

Stage:5 Create snapshot inventory

Stage:6 Start vRealize LogInsight Generic Task

Stage:7 deleteNodeSnapshot

Stage:8 productupgradeinventoryupdate


Looking at Stage 6 in detail and what really happens in the background
