Installing the Pure Storage Plugin

Note the process to install the plugin or upgrade it, is the same. If you are upgrading and you have written custom workflows, it is imperative that you test the update on a development copy of your vRO deployment to ensure that all custom workflows continue to execute properly.

To install the plugin into vRealize Orchestrator 7.x login to the vRO Control Center. Go to the management address of the vRO instance (http://<vro FQDN>:8281) and click Start the Control Center:
