Notes from the lab: vRealize Log Insight Cluster Upgrade 1-2-3

I must say I’m very impressed by the simpleness and stability at how VMware put the upgrade process in place for vRealize Log Insight.

First a little bit of a background of my deployment:
– Three node vRealize Log Insight 4.6.0 cluster
– Integrated Load Balancer (ILB) configured
– vSphere 6.7 as hypervisor platform

I had the deployment running for a while and saw that 4.6.1 was available. Simple as that downloaded the upgrade .pak file from myVMware and logged in to my Log Insight cluster address, started the upgrade and got prompted to redirect to the master node for the upgrade progress, and simple as that nothing else to do! Either it works and every node will get rebooted automatically or it will fail and rollback all nodes.

For reference I’ve taken some screenshots of the process:

Hope this helps.
