I recently upgraded a clients View environment as well as their vCenter server and its SQL DB. The upgrades have gone without a glitch so far.

I am ready to upgrade both of our hosts from 4.1 U1 to 5, but want to confirm that performing this remotely using VUM will work.

I read online that each Host will reboot after 5 minutes rather than having to actually be onsite and hit enter. Is this correct?

The hosts have DRM/HA but I am not concerned about keeping them on. I will be doing the upgrade after hours so unless the vCenter/VUM server needs to stay on for the process should I just tell them to shutoff during the upgrade? What should I chose for the power options of the VMs if not shutdown...
