VMWARE - Upgrade vsphere 4.1 to 5.1
Posted on 2013-01-25
We are just in the process of adding 2 new ESX hosts which will be connected to our existing vcenter server across a WAN froma remote site. Im thinking it will make sense to install 5.1 but Im going to have to upgrade my existing Vcenter server to do this. My question is which would be easiest:
1) Would it be easier to install a new vshere server to manage the 2 remote hosts so that they are separately managed.
2) In order to add the host under my existing vsphere cluster it will have to be upgraded to 5.1. Is this process worth doing just to add the 2 new remote hosts?
Hope this makes sense.
