If you installed earlier versions of vRealize Automation, be aware of changes in the installation for this release before you begin.

  • In this release, when a problem occurs with the Manager Service, the service can transparently fail over to a backup Manager Service host if one is available. You no longer need to log in to the backup host and start the service.

    See About Automatic Manager Service Failover.

  • This release allows for automatic failover of the embedded PostgreSQL database in certain configurations. See Automatic vRealize Automation PostgreSQL Database Failover.

  • This release of vRealize Automation includes Installation Wizard certificate page options to generate certificate signing request (CSR) files.

    If you expect to import your own certificates, your certificate authority (CA) can use the CSR to more easily create your SSL certificate.
