In place upgrade from VMware vsphere 4 to vsphere 5
Posted on 2013-01-15
I've upgraded two of my VMware hosts to vsphere 5. I have two hosts remaining to upgrade. E issue is that I don't have sufficient space to move all the virtual servers off of those hosts before upgrading.
Can I shut down the virtual servers and upgrade with them still in place on the host?
What chance am I taking on losing my virtual servers? I have backups, but restores would take many, many hours.
