Issue/Introduction

This update addresses critical issues in vRealize Orchestrator 8.6.0 that may result in environment downtime.

The update will perform the following steps for each node:

  1. Fix the upgrade progress monitor and patch installer
  2. Fix the service responsible for automatically cleaning up old files
  3. Trigger cleanup of the logs disk (Hard disk 3) by deleting oldest entries from /var/log/services-logs if the disk has less than 30% free space
  4. If any of the nodes had less than 5% space available on Hard disk 3 before the patch installation started, all nodes will be rebooted and all services will be redeployed. Otherwise, these steps will be skipped.


Symptoms:

This article contains a list of critical issues that are resolved in the latest cumulative update available for vRealize Orchestrator 8.6.0:

  1. System runs out of disk space on /var/log, UI becomes inaccessible due to failing disk health check, logs of services are lost
  2. Upgrade progress monitor might not detect if VAMI installation has exited abnormally, waits indefinitely
  3. Patch installer ignores RPM exclusion list, may affect installation of other patches.
  4. Log bundle collector skips older infra logs and configuration files, might complicate troubleshooting
