vCloud Director SP: Upgrading and Applying New License Key

Thought I’d put up a very quick post on the process of upgrading from vCloud Director 5.5.x to vCloud Director SP 5.6.x. Any previous license key that you had associated with your vCD instance will not work once you upgrade to the SP Build.

After you upgrade using the vCD SP 5.6.x binaries…upon first login you will be prompted to enter in a new Serial Number.

If you haven’t done so already you will need to log into your MyVMware Account and update your existing key via the licensing portal and go through the upgrade license key process shown below:

vcd_sp_upgrade_2

 

vcd_sp_upgrade_3

 

vcd_sp_upgrade_4

 

vcd_sp_upgrade_5

 

vcd_sp_upgrade_6

vcd_sp_upgrade_7

Once that’s done you can go back to the vCD UI and apply the new license code and you on your way.
