I have VMware ESXi 4.0 installed and running on a flash drive connected to a server. How can I upgrade to ESXi 5.0 remotely?

you would need access to the server via iLO or DRAC, insert the ISO in the cdrom drive, boot from cdrom, and complete an inplace upgrade.ESXi 4.0 will then be detected and upgraded to ESXi 5.0.

Ensure your serverbis on the hcl.
