Vcenter 5.1 3a Upgrade to 3b

asrvwiz asked
Last Modified: 2015-10-19
I have conflicting documentation as to how to do the upgrade.  The readme from the ISO says to run the autorun.exe.   A link in the release notes say to use the individual installer for each service wherever possible, as opposed to the simple
installer.  So I am not sure which way to proceed.  I am leaning towards doing the individual installers, but wanted to get some input.

The upgrade to 3a was a disaster, and I am trying to avoid that from happening again.  Any help is greatly appreciated.
