You can upgrade an Orchestrator cluster to version 7.x by upgrading a single instance and joining nodes that are freshly installed on version 7.x.
Take a snapshot of all vRealize Orchestrator server nodes.
Back up the Orchestrator shared database.
- Stop the Orchestrator services vco-server, vco-configurator, and vco-proxy on all cluster nodes.
- Upgrade only one of the Orchestrator server instances in your cluster.
- Start the configuration service of the Orchestrator server that you upgraded and log in to Control Center as root.
- Go to the Validate Configuration page to check the state of the system components.
- Deploy a new Orchestrator appliance on the upgraded version.
- Configure the new node with the network settings of an existing instance.
- From the Orchestrator Cluster Management page in Control Center, join the new node to the upgraded node of your cluster.
- Restart the Orchestrator servers from the Startup Options page in Control Center to match the configuration fingerprints between the nodes.
- Verify that the vRealize Orchestrator cluster is configured properly by opening the Validate Configuration page in Control Center.
- (Optional) Repeat Step 5 to Step 9 for each node in the cluster.
You have successfully upgraded the Orchestrator cluster.
