The VSA cluster service might reflect an earlier version even though the VSA cluster has been successfully upgraded. To verify if the VSA cluster service is successfully upgraded, check the version of the VSA cluster service in the VSA cluster service version file (VCS.VERSION). If the version of the VSA cluster service in the VCS.VERSION file is same as that of the installed VSA cluster, you can safely ignore occurrences of outdated VSA cluster service version. If the VCS.VERSION file displays an earlier version of the VSA cluster service, follow the steps in the procedure.

Before you begin

Check the version of the VSA cluster service in the VSA cluster service version file as described below:

On a Windows platform:

  1. Navigate to Installation Directory\VMware\Infrastructure\VSA Manager\VSAClusterService-X\conf\.

  2. Open the VCS.VERSION file.

  3. Check if the VSA cluster service version displayed is same as that of the installed VSA cluster.

On a Linux platform:

  1. Start the Command Prompt.

  2. In the Command Prompt, change directory to the directory of the VCS.VERSION file.

    cd  Installation Directory/vmwarevcsadmin/VSAClusterService-X/conf/
  3. Open the VCS.VERSION file.

    vi VCS.VERSION
  4. Check if the VSA cluster service version displayed is same as that of the installed VSA cluster.

Procedure

  1. Uninstall the existing VSA cluster service from the guest operating system.
  2. Download the latest VSA cluster service package corresponding to the version of VSA Manager installed.

    For Windows platform, download VMware-vsaclusterservice-all-VersionNo-BuildNo.exe and for Linux platform, download VMware-VSAClusterService-VersionNo-BuildNo-linux.zip.

  3. Install the newly downloaded VSA cluster service package on the guest operating system.

Results

VSA cluster service version is updated.

What to do next

Verify that the VSA cluster is up and running. Also, ensure that the VSA data stores and VSA appliances are online.
