vRO and VUM 6.7

Hi,

I want to automate vSphere Updates with Update Manager in vCenter 6.7 (U2+).

I came across a thread that was talking about the 6.5 (technical preview) version which is not compatible to VUM 6.7.

Any recommendations how to automate VUM 6.7 with vRO? Any timeline for the VUM package to be updated to VUM 6.7?

Regards

Hi,

thanks for your reply. Its not a problem to automate vSphere tasks in vRO but Update Manager!

I cant find any clue in the mentioned post regarding Update Manager.

The newest version of the vSphere plugin for vRO does not have any Update Manager related workflow or actions.

Hi

There is a VUM plugin you need to install I have not see one for 6.7 but it might be worth trying the 6.5 one -> Technical Preview Version of VMware vRealize Orchestrator Plug-In for VMware Update Manager 6.5

I am using this with VRO 7.6 and VC 6.5, works quite well once you figure out how to create your own custom workflows.

Hi,

the VUM plugin for vRO does not work with vSphere 6.7. When running remediation workflow, it always fails.

I think the problem is that ESXi 6.7 added support for Fast Reboot/Hypervisor Reboot and the plugin sends wrong command to vCenter?!

Any help would be appreciated.
