I have been writing documentation for some time but it has always bothered me that there has been no official Visio Stencils or Icons for the documentation of VMware solutions.

Last week VMware published the promised new version of vROps 8.0, so as soon as the GA appeared on the website I started downloading, noblesse oblige as we say 😊. I ran the upgrade in my lab without any backups or anything. It is only a test lab after all. But I did read the release notes! I was surprised when the install stopped and said some of the requirements were not met.
I consulted KB 74952 to install the Upgrade Assesment Tool, which is a breeze in itself. Just upload the pak-file – which resides in your vROps 8.0 dir anyway – as a software update. Afterwards you can download the light support pack it created and see what was wrong. In my case I got:
Expired password ? I login each day with the password I created at install, thank you very much. I was never locked out. On a hunch I changed my password and look! The install now ran smoothly! Afterwards I saw John Dias tweet about KB 75195. So if you encounter that same problem, have a look. My install ran rather quickly, but it is a small test install with only some management packs.
I see some people complain that their install hangs or that they run into self-signed certificate issues as documented in KB 2147205. I have not seen those.
Now the Troubleshooting Workbench looks great! I launched a bad behaving VM so that I can write about the next…
Let me know if you upgraded to v8.0 and what your experience is. Of course if you run into issues you might check the VMware communities or your favourite support channel…
