vSphere upgrade saga: Upgrading vCenter Operations Manager

By  

Now you can go back into the UI’s admin interface (http://vcops/admin) to deregister the exsting vCenter registration and then register vCenter into vCops. Yes, you have to delete the old and reregister the same vCenter server.

Once vCops is registered with vCenter, you can use the admin screen to perform the upgrade using the PAK file downloaded from VMware. The last step is to reboot the vCops vApp. While not strictly necessary I found it always helps with respect to licensing.

Speaking of licensing, if you had a vCops Enterprise license but only upgraded to vCloud Suite Standard, your vCops Enterprise license no longer applies. You need vCloud Suite Enterprise to get vCops Enterprise functionality. I am trying a number of different license keys but have not been able to go back to my existing vCops Enterprise license, something VMware will eventually have to fix.
