VMware vRealize Log Insight 3.3 upgrade

Steve has documented it here, so I will just complement it. As usual, always review the Release Notes first. Mine is a simple setup (no cluster), so it all look good to me.

If you are upgrading from 3.0, you will benefit from the upgrade enhancements made in 3.0. If you are running older version, you need to upgrade to 3.0 first. The steps to upgrade 3.0 –> 3.3 are similar to the steps to upgrade earlier versions. See the blog by Mariusz and Vladan Seget if you have the older version. Look at their documents if you are not familiar.

Go to the Management –> Cluster, as shown below


Click on Upgrade from PAK.


Click Upgrade. You will see the uploading step. This is just copying the PAK file to the VM.


Once you accept the EULA, you will see this. In my case, it only took a few minutes.


And it’s done! Notice the license becomes evaluation in my case.


I verified the upgrade, and the version is now showing 3.3.0


BTW, the vSphere content pack is also updated. It’s a minor update from 3.0 and 3.1. At a glance, I have not spotted any changes yet.

I won’t cover the enhancements that Steve Flander has covered. Here are 2 additional ones.

First, you can collapse the chart.

Next, you can have a tabular view instead of chart.

I will explore more. In the meantime, hope you find it useful.
