You can download and map the OVA bundle that is already patched in a VMware Aria Automation environment by using VMware Aria Suite Lifecycle. This operation is useful when you want to scale out a patched environment. VMware Aria Operations for Logs patch binaries are also supported.


Ensure the OVA bundle corresponding to the patched product is downloaded from My VMware Portal to VMware Aria Suite Lifecycle appliance and is placed in the data folder. For example: /data/patchovabundles/. For more information on downloading the OVA bundles, click My VMware portal. You can also see the detailed procedure for VMware Aria Automation at KB 79105.


  1. Click Lifecycle Operations and navigate to Settings > Binary Mappings.
  2. Click Patched Product Binaries.
  3. To download patches, click the link provided on the UI.
    You are directed to My VMware page where you can download the required patch or a OVA bundle.
    1. Enter the Source Location and click Discover.
      Source location is the directory path in the VMware Aria Suite Lifecycle appliance where the OVA bundle files are retrieved.
    2. Select the required OVA bundle from the list and click ADD.
  5. To delete a product patch, click Delete on the selected patch.
