Recently update your VMTurbo instance and are no longer able to login to the web GUI? It could be that the Java version is out of date. In this document we'll review how to check your current OS and Java versions and what actions you can take to update.

 

First, check the OS version your instance is running.

 

1) SSH into your VMTurbo instance. Default login is root/vmturbo

 

2) Run the following command:

cat /etc/os-release

Check the output for "VERSION="

If your appliance is running version 12.3 then you must perform a migration to a new VMTurbo instance. Follow instructions here: Operations Manager Migration Procedure

 

If your appliance is running version 13.2 then let's check the Java version next.

 

3) Run the following command:

java -version

 

If your openjdk version is 1.8 you are on the latest version.

If your openjdk version is 1.7 then you must update to version 1.8.

 

4) Update java to 1.8 by following these steps:

 

zypper install java-1_8_0-openjdk

 

5) Once the installation has finished, select java 1.8 as the default version to run. Run the following command:

 

update-alternatives --config java

 

Enter the selection number associated with version jre-1.8.0

 

6) Reboot the VMTurbo VM:

 

reboot

 

You should now be able to login to the web interface of VMTurbo if you recently updated an older version of VMTurbo.
