You install the update on the Identity Appliance before you update the vCloud Automation Center Appliance.

Single sign-on (SSO) hosts are specified differently in vCloud Automation Center 6.0 and 6.1. In 6.0, the host name includes port information. In 6.1, port information is not included when you specify the host name.

Be certain to leave the 6.0 hostname form for remote SSO hosts when you upgrade. This form includes the SSO port suffix, :7444, as part of the name.

Select a download method and download the update. See Downloading Virtual Appliance Updates.
