4. Clear your cookies before trying to access vShield Manager. I had a problem where it would say system functionality was not available until cookies were cleared.
5. Upgrade your vShield Edge, App, and Endpoint devices. If you do not restore your DB properly, then these devices will not be seen.
6. Then delete your old vShield Manager.
If you add new nodes at this time and happen to uninstall your vShield App and Endpoint components before the update, you will need to reinstall them before you can make use of Host Profiles as bits of the virtual switch configuration hang out for vShield App and Edge, which makes applying host profiles rather difficult. More on that when we get to post processing and ESXi upgrades.
Next up: upgrading vCloud Director.
