Log Insight – Upgrade 3.6 to 4.0

By | December 14, 2016

Today I’m going to upgrade my 3 node Log Insight environment from 3.6 to 4.0. Here are the steps:

  1. Go to VMware.com and download the upgrade package:

  2. Log into your Log Insight 3.6 environment and choose the menu option in the upper right corner and select Administration:

  3. Select “Cluster” and click the “Upgrade Cluster” button:

  4. *IF* you are going to your VIP (assuming you have ILB turned on), Log Insight will barf at this point and redirect you to the master node, click “Redirect” to proceed:

  5. Select the file from your download location and click “Upgrade”:

  6. The PAK file will upload
  7. Accept the EULA:

  8. Wait patiently J (the hardest part for me!)

  9. When (if?) the master node successfully upgrades, you will get the following notification:

  10. If you go back to the Cluster Management Page you can watch the other nodes as they progress:

That’s it, much easier than in previous iterations.  Up next how to install Content Packs & create new agent groups.
