Hi People,

I'm about to do a bunch of ESX 4.1 to ESXi 5.1u1 hosts upgrade (around 75 - 80 of them) in my current environment.

What are the caveats of migrating from ESX into ESXi 5.1u1 ?

What should I do before the upgrade to make sure that the Force migration while keeping the existing LUNs intact without affecting the hosted VMs ?

Thanks in advance
