vCO vApp Upgrade Issue

So I decided to remediate my vCO vApp to the latest version, 4.2.1.  Everything went smooth after attaching the baseline that I created to upgrade it through VUM.  Upgrade looked successful, went to login and received:

Can’t connect to host…

After re-reading the release notes, I noticed the first Known Issue for Installation was:

After you upgrade the Orchestrator appliance to version 4.2.1, the Orchestrator server might not start automatically

So following the workaround provided I proceeded to:

    • Log in to the appliance home page.
    • Click Orchestrator Configuration, and log in.
    • Click the Database tab on the left, and click Update database.
    • Click the Startup Options tab on the left.
    • Click Start service.

This didn’t seem to resolve the issue for me.  I was still unable to login.  So what to do…I decided that I may need to clear all temporary files on the server.  You can do this by:

    • Log in to the appliance home page.
    • Click Orchestrator Configuration, and log in.
    • Click the Startup Options tab on the left.
    • Click Stop service.
    • Click the Troubleshooting tab on the left.
    • Click Clean directories.
    • Click the Startup Options tab on the left again.
    • Click Start service.

Viola!  This seem to resolve the issue I was having of logging in via the Orchestrator Client.
