Looking for  vCentre upgrade procedures, hope someone will put some steps over here.
We have ver 5.1 update 1b and want to update this to sp2.
Is it something straightforward?

Yes, it's very straightforward, the longest part is actually downloading the ISO from VMware!

1. Insert/Attach the ISO to the vCenter Server if it's a VM, otherwise burn to disk and insert into CDROM.

2. Run the Setup program from the DVD.

3. It will ask to Upgrade each of these components.

Web Client
vCenter Server

and your done.

less than 30 minutes.

It will not affect the hosts or the running VMs, but of course anyone connected to vCenter will get disconnected whilst you are upgrading.
