VMware Cloud Director Upgrade History

Hi everyone and welcome to a very short post. This post is going to cover something that I was asked today. The question I have received was “Do you know the upgrade history of our VMware Cloud Director enviroment?”

You can find the upgrade steps in the following link https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-Cloud-Director/10.3/VMware-Cloud-Director-Install-Configure-Upgrade-Guide/GUID-BE64E6B6-EEB5-40FD-8797-45EF62854C06.html

Note: The following steps apply only for the appliance deployment.

To troubleshoot the upgrade, there is a file you can check to monitor the upgrade process.


In the file you can find the following information that shows from which version you are upgrading and the destination version.

Said that, I have created a single liner

more /opt/vmware/var/log/vami/updatecli.log | grep "to version"

The result of that one liner is the complete upgrade history. Keep in mind that if you delete this file or you redeploy a cell for any reason, that information won’t be available.

I hope you enjoyed this rush post.

If your are interested in a specific topic, let me know in the comments section below and I’ll be happy to write a new post about it.

Be sociable, share it!
