ESXi upgrade question

When upgrading ESXi hosts from 5.5 to 6.5, will all of my host configs (network, storage connectors, etc..)remain intact after the upgrade?  I did backup the host config using vSphere CLI but not sure if I will need to restore them.  Thanks for the help.

Yes, if you select UPGRADE!

If you don't select UPGRADE, you'll end up with new ESXi hosts!

I did backup the host config using vSphere CLI but not sure if I will need to restore them.

It's unwise, and not supported to restore from different builds.... you can use force, but that forces a square peg into a round hole!

No need!
