To upgrade to vCloud Connector 2.6, upgrade your vCloud Connector 2.5 server and all vCloud Connector 2.5 nodes. You upgrade a vCloud Connector server or node from its Admin Web console.

Note

You can upgrade to vCloud Connector 2.6 from vCloud Connector version 2.5 only. You cannot upgrade from earlier versions to version 2.6.

You have the IP address of the vCloud Connector server or node. You can get the IP address from its console in the vSphere or vCloud Director cloud in which it is installed.

You have updated the hardware settings of the server or node to the vCloud Connector 2.6 level. See Edit Hardware Settings for vCloud Connector Server and Nodes on vSphere and Edit Hardware Settings for vCloud Connector Server and Nodes on vCloud Director.

If you use NFS share for the node staging area, modify your settings to use the nolock option for mounting the NFS share. This is required in vCloud Connector 2.6.
