Has anyone had any luck deploying 8.1 Patch 2. We've had a number of cracks at getting this to function without success. The task gets to V.raVaWait4UpgradeExec and then never gets any further. The K8 pods are all still running throughout the process and nothing appears to get patched at all.
There are also 2 bundles available....
Both appear the same and can be mapped in vRSLCM, although the ovabundle patch has a newer date. Not sure which we should be using, neither appear to do anything though!
please open an SR ticket with vmware support to get this looked into.
Thru the forum here it will be a tough to troubleshot, as you have to share some logs etc.
but when you start the patch process, you can monitor with more details from inside the vRA appliance itself by running this command:
vracli upgrade status --follow
Hi, where did you get those files? I've upgraded to that version via LCM but now I've later come to scale out but I can't because it complains I don't have the right ovabundle for that version. Frustrating product
Thanks in advance
I just finished my patching process here i will describe the steps:
If you face any issue let me know.
I am keen to understand whether your patch application for vRA8.1 was actually successful. We had no success actually applying the patch. The request would look to be doing nothing as could be confirmed with following the logs, eventually the LCM job would fail. The task gets to V.raVaWait4UpgradeExec and never proceeds.
The issue doesn't break the 8.1 Patch 1 instance as redeploy has it all working again. Just wanted to get the updates in patch 2 applied. Otherwise I'll have to wait for 8.2, which will hopefully arrive in October some time.
