There is no direct upgrade path to version 5.x from versions earlier than 5.0. To migrate your data from version 4.x, see Migrating from InfiniMetrics 4.x to 5.0 or above.

Infinidat leverages VMware's native Update Manager by providing a tool that checks for upgrades. This tool is accessible via the internet.

If your vCenter Server does not have an internet connection, you can use other upgrade methods as described further down this section.

Download site for the installation file

The InfiniMetrics installation file is provided in an OVA format. The OVA file is available from:
https://repo.infinidat.com/home/main-stable#infinimetrics

Backing up the VM

Prior to the upgrade, it is advised to back up the InfiniMetrics VM.
