All this monitoring my lab business has got out of hand recently. So much so that I finally decided to upgrade my VMware vRealize Log Insight appliance from the suitably vintage v3.0. It’s not a complicated process but one that took me a bit to figure out first time around, so here goes nothing.
First up, check the VMware Interoperability Matrix to find your upgrade path. I’m going from 3.0 to the latest version, so my next hop will be to v3.3.0.
Head to the vRealize Log Insight download page, select the required version, then download the relevant upgrade pak file.
Over on vRLI, head to Administration, Cluster, then select Upgrade From PAK and click through the wizard
Some time later…
