Greetings,

I am getting conflicting answers regarding my upgrade from vSphere 5 to 5.1. Does anyone know if I am able to upgrade from 5 to 5.1? I am running the essentials plus bundle 5 and have just renewed my support but I don't see a place to request a license upgrade in my VMware portal.  

Thanks -- Ryan

Your 5.0 licenses are still valid for 5.1.

to be clear, I would just plug my 5 licenses into the 5.1 install?

thanks for clarifying

if you are doing an upgrade, there is no need to enter any license, it will use the existing licenses.

Per your previous recommendations, I'll likely do a fresh install.

Thx
