Our current vCenter server is near the end of its life. It's painfully slow and a waste of time fixing. The current host has the following:
* Win Svr 2008 R2
* vCenter Server 22.214.171.124
* Update Manager 126.96.36.199
* vSphere orchestrator server 188.8.131.52
* SQL Express 2005 database
I have built a new Server 2008 R2 host with the intention of installing vCenter 5.5 and the appropriate components listed above.
I would also like to host the Database on a remote SQL 2008 R2 host rather than a local SQL Express instance.
Can all this be achieved by backup/restoring the DB to the new SQL host, install vCenter on the new host and point to the appropriate DB? (obviously in more detail)
Or will I need to first replicate all versions on the new host as they are now, and then upgrade each component after?
