Here is the build/version info from my vCenter server.

vsphere client
version 4.1.0
build 491557

vCenter Server
version 4.1.0
build 258902

Can I go directly to update 2 or do I have to install update 1?

I also have an EVC cluster, any issues with the update I should watch out for?
 
All my ESXi servers are already on update 2.

Thanks!

Yep...can go directly to U2. Typically, for "updates" there are no issues. The only 'issues' stem from major release upgrades.

you can apply U2 as an inplace upgrade.

Just make sure you have a Full Backup of vCenter, not a VMware Snapshot, and a full backup of the SQL database as roll back.

Sometimes the upgrading of the vCenter service breaks, and you end up with no vCenter Server on your Server.
