tring to upgrade esx 4.1 to esxi 5.1
Posted on 2013-06-20
When I boot the host from the esxi 5.1 cd, I get the 3 options listed here:
Migrate ESX, preserve vmfs datastore
Install ESXI, preserver vmfs datastore
Install ESXi, overwrite vmfs datastore.
Now I want to keep the datastore intact so not to loose it so should I select the first option or the second option?
When I selected migrate ESX, it told me it was going to reparation the disk, which I don't want to loose the datastore...
