After you upgrade the IaaS server components, you must restore access to the vRealize Orchestrator.

About this task

When you upgrade to vRealize Automation 7.3, you need to perform this procedure to accommodate the new Role-Based Access Control feature. This procedure is written for a high-availability environment.

Prerequisites

Make a snapshot of your vRealize Automation environment.

Procedure

  1. Log in to the vRealize Automation appliance management console as root by using the appliance host fully qualified domain name, https://va-hostname.domain.name:5480.
  2. Select vRA Settings > Database.
  3. Identify the master and replica nodes.
  4. On each replica node, open an SSH session, log in as administrator, and run this command:

    service vco-server stop && service vco-configurator stop

  5. On the master node, open an SSH session, log in as administrator, and run this command:

    rm /etc/vco/app-server/vco-registration-id

  6. On the master node, change directories to /etc/vco/app-server/.
  7. Open the sso.properties file.
  8. If the property name com.vmware.o11n.sso.admin.group.name contains spaces or any other Bash-related characters that can be accepted as a special character in a Bash command such as a hyphen (') or a dollar sign ($), complete these steps.
    1. Copy the line with the com.vmware.o11n.sso.admin.group.name property and enter AdminGroup for the value.
    2. Add # to the beginning of the original line with the com.vmware.o11n.sso.admin.group.name property to comment the line.
    3. Save and close the sso.properties file.
  9. Run this command:

    vcac-vami vco-service-reconfigure

  10. Open the sso.properties file. If the file has changed, complete these steps.
    1. Remove the # from the beginning of the original line with the com.vmware.o11n.sso.admin.group.name property to uncomment the line.
    2. Remove the copy of the line with the com.vmware.o11n.sso.admin.group.name property.
    3. Save and close the sso.properties file.
  11. Run this command to restart the vco-server service:

    service vco-server restart

  12. Run this command to restart the vco-configurator service:

    service vco-configurator restart

  13. In the vRealize Automation appliance management console, click Services and wait until all the services in the master node are REGISTERED.
  14. When all the services are registered, join the vRealize Automation replica nodes to the vRealize Automation cluster to synchronize the vRealize Orchestrator configuration. For information, see Reconfigure the Built-In vRealize Orchestrator to Support High Availability.
