Hello Experts - I am planning to do a memory upgrade on three ESX hosts running 5.1.  Is there anything I need to do aside from physically installing it?  Just wanted to be sure I don't missing anything on the VMware side.

I'd do the following:

1. Run a memory test (before upgrading memory)
2. Update your ESX hosts (if any updates are available)
3. Verify updates installed correctly
4. Install memory
5. Run a memory test (post upgrade)

It is a pretty straightforward process, and these are only precautionary steps.
