This section describes how to upgrade a SD-WAN Gateway installation.

Important: This procedure will not work for upgrading Gateway images version 3.x to 4.x due to significant platform changes. Upgrading from 3.x to 4.x image will require new gateway deployment and reactivation. Please refer to VMware SD-WAN Partner Gateway Upgrade and Migration 3.4 to 4.0 for upgrade information.

To upgrade a SD-WAN Gateway installation:

  1. Download the SD-WAN Gateway update package.
  2. Upload the image to the SD-WAN Gateway system (using, for example, the scp command). Copy the image to the following location on the system: /var/lib/velocloud/software_update/vcg_update.tar.
  3. Connect to the SD-WAN Gateway console and run:
    sudo /opt/vc/bin/vcg_software_update
