The only thing you will need to do if you haven't already is upgrade the version of the Storage Console you have before you can upgrade the Lefthand units.

You need to be running Central Management Console version 9.0, apart from that, the obvious of course is to make sure you have a backup, but this isn't as much of an issue if you are using the LeftHand Units in high redundancy mode (2 units mirrored)

I have the CMC updated to 9.0 and have downloaded the updates.

Then you should be good to go, I did 4 units only last week and didn't have a problem.

Did you lose connectivity within any of his Iscsi connections or VMware machines during the upgrade?
