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:

  1. Download the latest RPM package for Java from the official Oracle site.
  2. Upload the RPM package to your Linux server.
  3. Install the RPM package. For example:

    sudo rpm -1 jdk8u112-linux-x64.rpm
  4. Run the following command to ensure Java upgraded correctly:

    ls -la /usr/java/latest
  5. Restart the Tunnel Proxy service.
