Use this procedure if you need to replace a member of a legacy cluster after you have already upgraded VSA Manager to version 5.5 or later.


Upgrade VSA Manager to version 5.5 or later. The VSA cluster and its components remain at an earlier 5.1.x verison.


  1. From VSA 5.1.x installation media, copy the ovf subdirectory into a subdirectory in the following existing directory:
    C:\Program Files\VMware\Infrastructure\tomcat\webapps\VSAManager\ovf\ovf-5.1.0
  2. Perform the replace procedure. See Replace a VSA Cluster Member.


While replacing the cluster member, VSA Manager detects the subdirectory with the correct version number and selects appropriate ovf for the replace operation.
