  • upgrade from esx 3.5 to vsphere 4.01

    Does any one have any documentation or where i can go to get a step by step.

    We have 3 hosts and have vm on all of them. I have them clustered with HA and worried that if i break it and upgrade one host i cant move my vm s to upgrade the others. Really dont want to do an in-place upgrade.. too scary..

    Also how do i upgrade Lic server? do i do that first and how does that effect the cluster?

    please give me the heads up or links to any resources.

    thank you to all who reply

      We need to know more about your setup. I'm assuming that you have vCenter since you said your using HA. Do you have vMotion configured as well?

      Do you want to rebuild the hosts or upgrade?
