Instructions:

 

 

The NetWorker VMware Protection (NVP) integration is configured with the vProxy appliance. There is no procedure to automatically update the vProxy appliance version. To update the vProxy appliance, you must delete the currently deployed vProxy from NMC and vCenter, and then deploy and register the new vProxy appliance on the same vCenter.   
   
    1) Gather the following information about the vProxy appliance:   

      - IP address     
      - DNS servers' IP addresses     
      - DNS suffix     
      - Default Gateway     
      - Netmask      
      - VLAN     
      - Datastore     
      - Location in vCenter     
          
    2) Delete the vProxy appliance from NMC, as described in the "Deleting the vProxy host" section of the Dell EMC NetWorker VMware Integration Guide.   
    3) Log in to the vCenter server by using the vSphere Client and remove the vProxy VM from the vCenter by powering off the VM and then deleting the vProxy.   
    4) Deploy the new vProxy appliance and configure the network settings, as described in the "Deploy the vProxy appliance" section of the Dell EMC NetWorker VMware Integration Guide.   
    5) Add the newly deployed vProxy appliance to the NetWorker server and configure the appliance, as described in the "Configuring the vProxy in NetWorker" section of the Dell EMC NetWorker VMware Integration Guide.   
    6) After vProxy appliance registration completes, verify that a valid certificate appears in the NMC vProxy Properties.
