Updatemanager upgrade baseline


I have always had concerns with upgrading ESXi from say vSphere 4 to vSphere 5 and storage connectivity. My main concern by leaving the production LUNs connected while doing the upgrade on a host is that something might happen to the LUNs during the upgrade process.

What do you guys usually do? I often disable ports on FC switches.

Remove FC cables or Disable FC ports, just in case of accident, it does happen!

Thanks hanccocka. I will continue doing that, eventhough an upgrade will take longer that way its always good to be safe.

I ensure all VMs are shut and perform my upgrade.  Never had any issues.
