After the upgrade is complete, follow these steps.

Procedure

  1. Delete the snapshot of the NSX Manager taken before the upgrade.
  2. Create a current backup of the NSX Manager after the upgrade.
  3. Check that VIBs have been installed on the hosts.

    NSX installs these VIBs:

    esxcli software vib get --vibname esx-vxlan
    esxcli software vib get --vibname esx-vsip
    
    

    If Guest Introspection has been installed, also check that this VIB is present on the hosts:

    esxcli software vib get --vibname epsec-mux
    
    
  4. Resynchronize the host message bus. VMware advises that all customers perform resync after an upgrade.

    You can use the following API call to perform the resynchronization on each host.

    URL : https://<nsx-mgr-ip>/api/4.0/firewall/forceSync/<host-id>
    HTTP Method : POST 
    
    Headers: 
    		
    Authorization : base64encoded value of username password
    Accept : application/xml
    Content-Type : application/xml
