      Hello,

      Could you inform me about the "VMUpgradeHelper" service.

      I understood that this service could be used during migration to save or restore the network configuration.

      But is it normal that it is launched at each stop and each start of the VM.

      is it just used as its name suggests for the phases of upgrade, or is it simply the service which takes care of saving and restoring the network configuration at each shutdown / restart

       

       

      shutdown VM

         74032 Mar 16 15:59  Information VMTools                       108 The service was stopped.

      74031 Mar 16 15:59  Information VMUpgradeHelper               272 Saved network configuration.

      74030 Mar 16 15:59  Information VMUpgradeHelper               260 Saving network configuration.      

       

      Start VM

        74051 Mar 16 16:01  Information VMUpgradeHelper               271 Restored network configuration.

      74050 Mar 16 16:01  Information NetBackup Legacy ...           14 Service started.

      74043 Mar 16 16:01  Information VMTools                       105 The service was started.    

       

      thank you for your explanation
