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:





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