You can perform an in-place upgrade of your current VMware vRealize ™ Automation 7.0 or 7.0.1 environment to the latest version. You use several upgrade procedures specific to these versions to upgrade your environment.

An in-place upgrade is a multi-stage process in which you perform procedures in a particular order on the various components in your current environment. You must upgrade all product components to the same version.

Note:

New vRealize Automation features introduce several enhancements along with the ability to upgrade or migrate to the new version. For recommendations and guidance before you begin the upgrade process, visit the vRealize Automation Upgrade Assistance Program web page at http://www.vmware.com/products/vrealize-automation/upgrade-center before you begin the upgrade process.

Beginning with vRealize Automation 7.2, JFrog Artifactory Pro is no lunger bundled with the vRealize Automation appliance. If you upgrade from an earlier version of vRealize Automation, the upgrade process removes JFrog Artifactory Pro. For more information, see Knowledge Base 2147237.

Beginning in 6.2.0, 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.
