Upgrading is a multistage process in which procedures must be performed in a particular order. Follow the suggested processes to ensure a smooth upgrade with a minimum of system downtime. You must upgrade all product components to the same version.

Note:

Beginning in 6.2, vCloud Automation Center is rebranded to vRealize Automation. Only the user interface and service names are changed. Directory names and program names that contain vcac are not affected.

Locate your currently installed version in the table and then follow the steps in the documents on the right to incrementally upgrade your vRealize Automation environment to the latest release. You can find links to the documentation for all versions of vCloud Automation Center and vRealize Automation at https://www.vmware.com/support/pubs/vcac-pubs.html.
