VMware Aria Suite Lifecycle Upgrade to 8.14 | Postupdate phase failure |

Updated: Oct 23, 2023


 

This is a rare occurrance and might be seen on appliances which were deployed with fips mode disabled.


 

Tried to explain this in a video recording hope this helps




 

VMware KB Article to be followed : https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/95231


Always ensure there's a snapshot taken before upgrade



 

Proactive Measure


If your planning for an uprgade of Suite Lifecycle 8.12 to 8.14 then...





1. Create a file called fips_disable
touch /var/log/bootstrap/fips_disable

2. Change permissions
chmod 644 var/log/bootstrap/fips_disable


3. Go ahead and upgrade, should be seamless



 

Reactive measure If you have hit the problem, then you can come out of it in 2 ways. KB https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/95231 lists both of the methods. Method 1


1. Revert Suite Lifecycle appliance to pre-upgrade snapshot


2. Create a file called /var/log/bootstrap/fips_disable:


touch /var/log/bootstrap/fips_disable

3. Set the correct permission on the file


chmod 644  /var/log/bootstrap/fips_disable

4. Retry the upgrade


Method 2 Follow the instructions laid out under second section of resolution section of KB: https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/95231
