When a new version of Java releases, you must update the server hosting the Tunnel Proxy server. VMware Tunnel supports a method that does not require reinstalling the Tunnel Proxy component.
To upgrade Java without reinstalling Tunnel Proxy:
- Download the latest RPM package for Java from the official Oracle site.
- Upload the RPM package to your Linux server.
Install the RPM package. For example:
sudo rpm -1 jdk8u112-linux-x64.rpm
Run the following command to ensure Java upgraded correctly:
ls -la /usr/java/latest
- Restart the Tunnel Proxy service.
