Note

Increase VMware Aria Automation memory to 54 GB for Medium sized appliances only

When upgrading VMware Aria Automation to version 8.16.2, you might encounter a pre-check error indicating the need to raise appliance memory to 54 GB. Follow these steps to adjust the memory on the appliances accordingly.

  1. Shutdown the VMware Aria Automation appliance or cluster by using the Power Off day 2 action in VMware Aria Suite Lifecycle.

  2. Ensure that there are no snapshots on the appliances. If you have any, delete the snapshots as vCenter will not allow any resource expansion with snapshots.

  3. Increase the memory of the VMware Aria Automation appliances to 54 GB by using the VMware vSphere Client and selecting the Edit Settings menu option.

  4. Startup the VMware Aria Automation appliance or cluster by using the Power On day 2 action in VMware Aria Suite Lifecycle.

After these steps are performed, VMware Aria Automation can be upgraded to version 8.16.2.
