Managing upgrades is made simpler by creating logical groups for TCA-CP systems.


  • Group names must be unique.
  • The system being added must not be part of another group.


  1. Log in to the VMware Telco Cloud Automation web interface.
  2. Navigate to Administration > TCA-CP Upgrade Manager and click TCA-CP Systems.
    The list of TCA-CP systems that are paired with VMware Telco Cloud Automation appears in the window.
  3. Select the TCA-CP systems that you want to group for upgrading.
    A TCA-CP system can be part of only one group. Group creation fails if you select TCA-CP systems that are already associated with a group.
    Note: You can add additional TCA-CP systems to an existing group at any time. To add more systems to a group, navigate to TCA-CP Systems, select the specific systems, and click Add to Group.
  4. Click Create Group.
  5. Enter a group name and click Create.
    The group name is associated with the selected TCA-CP connected systems.


The systems associated with VMware Telco Cloud Automation are now logically grouped for upgrade operations.

You can view the group name associated with a specific TCA-CP system from TCA-CP Upgrade Manager > TCA-CP Systems. Or, you can review the list of systems available in each group at TCA-CP Upgrade Manager > TCA-CP Groups and select a group name.

Note: You can delete a group at any time. To remove a group, first delete the schedule associated with that group. Then navigate to TCA-CP Groups, select a group name, and click Delete.

What to do next

Create an upgrade schedule for the group.
