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 8.x login to the vRO Control Center. Go to the management address of the vRO instance at https://<vRO FQDN>/vco-controlcenter:

The plugin will be uploaded to vRO--the plugin features will be available as soon as the vRO server restarts which happens within a few minutes.

When the plugin is successfully installed, the workflows will appear in the inventory--you can access the client via https://<vRO FQDN>/vco/. The vRO configuration server will reboot automatically, allow 5 minutes or so for the service to resume, if you see an error saying "Bad Gateway" it is still starting up.
