Upgrading Nexenta Fusion to 1.1.1 FB1 build 8

Hello there,

I use Nexenta in my lab, and I really like it.  It works well and has a great UI too.  There was an update of the Nexenta Fusion management appliance recently.

I did find the release notes so that is good. All of the updated docs can be found here.

Lets get this done!

You need to visit the Fusion VM console. I access it via VMRC. You can see we are at


All that is necessary is to arrow over to Upgrade Fusion option. Once selected it will determine if there is an upgrade or not and display the following message.


This update seemed to take a little longer then in the past.  But then it starts.


Takes a little while.

So an easy update and we are done – I went from to 1.1.1 FB1 build 8. Did not take long. Now I need to update the array! Yes, there was no reboot required. After I did the restart wizard thing seen above, I was able to access the UI and see the new version.

  1. Thanks for the heads up on the update. I wish Nexenta could notify us when these updates are available, At least you inform us.

    1. Hi Tom,

      My fusion upgrade went smooth. My array not so much. Still working on it, and really hoping it works. A little nervous at this stage.
