Upgrading powervra 3.6.0 to vra 8.1 compatible version 4.1.1

This post was originally published on this site

Looking at docs, powervra is included per docs ‘Note: The PowerCLI runtime includes PowerShell and the following modules: VMware.PowerCLI, PowerNSX, PowervRA.’

However, it seems the version on vra 8.1 is 3.6.0, and I need to get 4.1.1 in it’s place. I have done an install-moduel and and update-module to 4.1.1, but it still seems powershell on vra does not see it as avaialable. I would think doing update-module woudl fix it but seems not. How to I point powershell to the new version of powervra, or updte current?
