What's New

  • Release 4.7.1 includes changes introduced in release 4.7.  Consult the What's New section of  VMware vRealize Log Insight 4.7 Release Notes for information about release 4.7.
  • Release 4.7.1 includes fixes to address potential security issues for configuration modification done with admin privileges. 

Upgrading from a Previous Version of vRealize Log Insight

Keep in mind the following considerations when upgrading to this version of vRealize Log Insight. 

Upgrade Path

You can upgrade to 4.7.1 directly from a  vRealize Log Insight 4.6.x release or  from release 4.7. If you are running an earlier version of vRealize Log Insight, you must first  incrementally upgrade your installation to a minimum of release 4.6.

Important Upgrade Notes

  • To upgrade to vRealize Log Insight 4.7.1, you must be running a vRealize Log Insight 4.6.x release or 4.7.
  • When performing a manual upgrade, you must upgrade workers one at a time. Upgrading more than one worker at the same time causes an upgrade failure. When you upgrade the master node to vRealize Log Insight 4.7.1, a rolling upgrade occurs unless specifically disabled.
  • Upgrading must be done from the master node's FQDN. Upgrading with the Integrated Load Balancer IP address is not supported.
  • vRealize Log Insight does not support two-node clusters. Add a third vRealize Log Insight node of the same version as the existing two nodes before performing an upgrade.
  • If the vRealize Log Insight upgrade (.pak file) has a new JRE version, then the user-installed certificates in a vRealize Log Insight setup (such as for event forwarding) become invisible after upgrade.

Resolved Issues

The following issues have been fixed in this release:

  • FIPS detection now works for the vRealize Log Insight agents running on RedHat 6.10
  • Issues with importing and authenticating an Active Directory group into vRealize Log Insight using vIDM have been fixed.
  • "vRealize Operations Manager 6.7 Content Pack" has been renamed to "vRealize Operations Manager 6.7+ Content Pack" to reflect that the content pack supports release 6.7 and later releases.
