The vRealize Log Insight agent comes pre-installed on the vRealize Business virtual appliances. You edit the liagent.ini file to configure the agent to send events to the vRealize Log Insight server in Region A, set the communication protocol and port, and configure the flat file log collection.

After upgrading vRealize Business, reconfigure the liagent.ini agent configuration file on the vRealize Business server and on the vRealize Business data collector VM to reconnect to the vRealize Log Insight server in Region A.
