You can install vRealize Automation for the first time, or you can upgrade or migrate your environment to the latest version. To determine your supported upgrade or migration path, locate your currently installed vCloud Automation Center or vRealize Automation version in the Choosing Your Upgrade or Migration Path table.

Note:

vRealize Automation features and innovations introduced in 7.0 required several platform-level enhancements. As a result, certain upgrade scenarios will require additional assistance. To ensure the best possible upgrade experience, it is recommended that you visit the vRealize Automation Upgrade Assistance webpage at http://www.vmware.com/products/vrealize-automation/upgrade-center before you begin the upgrade process.
