Updating Vcenter 5.5 0b to 2b

Hi, i'm planning to do the above update, i have cloned my Vcenter to test the update, removed the clone from network to avoid conflict. SSO and Inventory Services succesfully updated but when trying to update Vcenter i get asked to enter DB login credentials which i do, it then show screen to click install, when i click on install it fails with no error message just saying installation failed.
Any obvious i'm missing? does removing the vm from network could cause Vcenter install to fail?

Could you explain removed the clone from the network ?

The update should complete with no issues,

Can you check the installation logs ?


Hi Andrew, i have removed the clone nic so as not to create a conflict if turned on, for some reasons my colleague can access DB on he same machine using is credentials but i can't access DB from studio under my profile


It appears an issue with my account as colleague been able to run without issue, i will update with final resolution, many thanks all.
