After you obtain and install the upgrade patch, you install it as a separate deployment, migrate your data, and switch from the VMware Integrated OpenStack 2.0.x deployment.

1

If you are logged in to the vSphere Web Client, log out and log back in.

This refreshes the interface so the newly installed patch is accessible through the vSphere Web Client.

2

In the vSphere Web Client, select Home > Inventories, and click the VMware Integrated OpenStack icon.

3

Click the Summary tab to confirm that the VMware Integrated OpenStack manager is upgraded.

The new version appears next to the vApp.

4

Click the Manage tab and click the Upgrades tab.

The Upgrades tab lists the current VMware Integrated OpenStack deployment.

5

Right-click the deployment name and select Upgrade from the pop-up menu.

6

Enter the name for the new deployment.

This name must be different than the name of the existing deployment.

7

Click Next.

8

Configure the public and private VIP settings for the load balancer service.

These values serve as the temporary VIP configuration. When you migrate from the existing deployment to the upgraded deployment, the new deployment uses the existing VIP configuration, and the old deployment uses the temporary deployment.

Option

Description

Public Virtual IP

This value should be on the same subnet as the OpenStack API Access network, and should be outside the IP range specified for the OpenStack API Access network.

Private Virtual IP

Connects the load balancer interface with the Management network.

9

Click Next.

10

Review the upgrade configuration, and click Finish.

The new version is provisioned but not migrated. The existing version remains operative. The Upgrades tab now lists the current VMware Integrated OpenStack and new deployments. The current deployment shows a status of Running and the new, upgraded deployment shows a status of Provisioned.

11

On the Upgrades tab, right-click the name of the 2.0.x deployment, and select Migrate Data.

Important

You are prompted to confirm this action because during data migration, the VMware Integrated OpenStack services stop and downtime incurs until the upgrade process finishes.

When the migration process finishes, the status for the 2.5 deployment on the Upgrades tab changes to Migrated.

12

On the Upgrades tab, right-click the name of your previous deployment, and select Switch to New Deployment.

When the deployment switching process finishes, the status for the 2.5 deployment on the Upgrades tab changes to Running. The previous deployment shows a status of Stopped.

If the deployment process is unsuccessful, you can revert to your previous VMware Integrated OpenStack deployment. See Revert to a Previous VMware Integrated OpenStack Deployment.

If the deployment process is successful, you can delete the previous VMware Integrated OpenStack deployment.
