vSphere 4.1 to 5.0 Upgrade with VMware View
Posted on 2012-03-19
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!
