How to update Storsimple Virtual Aplliance
In order to update your virtual storsimple, you cannot achieve that using PowerShell like the physical storsimple. Indeed you have only two options. Updating directly from Azure portal or downloading the update package and updating from the local storsimple portal.
I’ll do it using Azure portal.
So first of all go to your storsimple manager in azure portal.
Select your device and go to maintenance tab.
If new updates are available you should see a message warning you about that.
Click then on download updates, this will not restart your device at any point.
From the job tab you can follow the progress
Once its complete go back to your device then maintenance tab and this time click on Install updates. If an update require a reboot you will be warned about it but the device will restart during the update installation if it is required without any further prompt.
once again you can follow the installation progress from the jobs tab.
Multiple reboot can occur during installation, when the jobs is at 100 % you can start using again your appliance which will be fully updated.
