If your existing vRealize Automation Directories Management connector appliance cannot connect to the Internet for upgrade, you can perform an offline upgrade. You must set up an upgrade repository on a local Web server and configure the connector appliance to use the local Web server for upgrade.


  • Confirm that a connector upgrade exists. Check the My VMware Downloads site at my.vmware.com for upgrades.

  • Verify that at least 2 GB of disk space is available on the primary root partition of the appliance.

  • Verify that the connector is properly configured.

  • Take a snapshot of your connector appliance to back it up. For information about how to take snapshots, see the vSphere documentation.

  • Configure the connector appliance to user a local Web server to host the upgrade file. See Prepare a Local Web Server for Offline Upgrade.
