You upgrade the vRealize Operations for Horizon solution in vRealize Operations Manager by uploading a new PAK file.

Procedure

  1. On each Horizon Connection Server host running a broker agent, select Start > VMware > vRealize Operations for Horizon Broker Agent Settings, and stop the broker agent service.

    Stopping the broker agent service prevents errors or unhandled messages from occurring while the vRealize Operations for Horizon solution is being upgraded.

  2. Copy the VMware-vrops-viewadapter-6.4-buildnumber.pak file to a temporary folder.
  3. Log in to the vRealize Operations Manager user interface as an administrator.
  4. In the menu, click Administration and in the left pane click Solutions.
  5. On the Solutions tab, click the Add icon and upgrade the solution.
    1. Browse to the temporary folder and select the new PAK file.
    2. Select Install the PAK file even if it is already installed and Reset Default Content and click Upload.

      The upload might take several minutes.

    3. Read and accept the EULA and click Next.

      Information about the upgrade is displayed in the window.

    4. Click Finish.
  6. Log in to the vRealize Operations Manager master node and restart the cluster.
    service vmware-vcops --full-restart
  7. If you are using vRealize Operations Manager 6.3 or earlier, open ports 3099, 3100, and 3101 in the firewall on the vRealize Operations Manager host.
    1. In the /opt/vmware/etc/vmware-vcops-firewall.conf file, locate TCPPORTS="$TCPPORTS 3091:3094" and add the following command on the next line:
      TCPPORTS="$TCPPORTS 3099:3101"
