I want to verify something here.... Do we really need to install and update manuall for the license server?
Because we installed the VC update just running the main install and have not had any problems at all. We assumed it was automatically upgraded.
Use the VIM Installer on a test box. See if it installs the license server. In my experience, it does not. That is why I always install the license server manually as the first step.

After few time with tech support, got everything back to normal more or less.
Left while trying to upgrade one esx server via Updates feature to update1, it was sitting hung @72%, will check tomorrow..
My license server versions went from 10.1 to 10.8 after the manual update.
intesting as ours reads 10.13 currently. We did not do a manual install specifically for the license server. So it would appear the VC install handles this. But it is interesting to see you have 10.8 and we have 10.13.
I believe 10.13 means you are on the old code still. .8 == .80 and .80 > .13, right? Now if it were .08, then .13 would be newer. I'm sure there are developers doing it both ways, but in this case, as I did a clean install, 10.8 is the correct version. They would make it clearer if they wrote it as 10.80 however.
Well I downloaded VC 2.5 U1 and ESX 3.5 U1 last night. I uninstalled my license server and installed the new license server. My old version was 10.8, my new one from the latest VC 2.5 U1 package is 188.8.131.52207
I haven't upgraded the ESX server yet - will do it this morning.
Who else has a license server version of 184.108.40.206207?
Did anyone else update from 2.0.2 to 2.5 and have a firewall between VC and ESX? I'm not able to connect my hosts (3.0.2 or 3.5) to VC and the firewall indicates 443 is being dropped. See my other thread http://communities.vmware.com/thread/139828?tstart=0.
Locking this thread. Please continue discussion in the other thread referenced by JohnTroyer. Thanks.
