Hello,

I'm going to be doing a vSphere upgrade from 4.1 to 5.0. I'm familiar with the upgrade process for the hypervisor and supporting Virtual Center  pieces; however, I haven't had much experience with VMware View.

Can anyone comment on any procedural issues or upgrade gotchas with regard to VMware View? For example:

*Should VMware View be upgraded prior to Virtual Center and the ESXi servers.
*Should VMware View be at version 5.0 vs 4.6...
*Are there any issues with Virtual Hardware / VMware tools upgrade to be concerned with.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for everyone's help... I'm going to start doing this in my lab since there seems to be a lot of moving parts.

However, I might be back with some questions.  :)
