Migrating from ESX 3.5 to ESX4.1 or ESXi4.1?
Posted on 2010-08-24
We would like our current ESX 3.5 servers.
We have some questions about the migration paths specially now that they have just released ESX 4.1.
Here are the questions:
1.) What would be the easiest way to go from 3.5 to ESX 4.1
2.) Are ESX 4.1 and ESXi4.1 different platforms? If yes, how do we migrate from 3.5 to ESX 4i? Can we migrate from 3.5 to ESX 4 and then move to ESX4i? Or does ESX4i needs to be installed from scratch?
3.) We want to migrate ASAP and we understand that perhaps installing from scratch will be require extra work. Are there any mayor adventages of going with ESXi4.1 compared to ESX4.1?
