vSphere 6 Lab Upgrade – vCenter Orchestrator to vRealize Orchestrator

| 02/04/2015 | Tags: , ,

vsphere logoI tested vSphere 6 quite intensively when it was in beta, but I didn’t ever upgrade my lab – basically because I need a stable environment to work on and I wasn’t sure that I could maintain that with the beta.

Now 6 has been GA a while and I have a little bit of time, I have begun the lab upgrade process. You can see a bit more about my lab hardware over on my lab page.

Upgrading the vCenter Orchestrator Appliance

Upgrading the vCenter Orchestrator Appliance is child’s play – just log onto the admin interface at using the root credentials.

Select the update tab, then click “Check Updates”. You should see appliance version 6.0.1 available, then click Install Updates


Accept the EULA and then confirm the update


Sit back, relax and wait while the upgrade package downloads and the appliance upgrades


Reboot when prompted


Once the reboot is completed, you have your newly upgraded vRealize Orchestrator Appliance!
