Planning to Migrate to VI3

I was curious to see if anyone has experienced any issues while running ESX Server 3.5 and Virtual Center 2.5? Whether or not there some not so obvious configurations I should be considering?

No obvious issues with ESX 3.5 & VC 2.5

I've setup a couple of dozen hosts now and haven't seen anything which concerns me.

I am running several 3.5 host and have no problems as of yet. I also upgraded my VC from 2.01 to 2.5 and did not experience any problems though I did read on a couple of threads where people had some issues with their databases after the upgrade.

A number of people have had problems upgrading the VC database so I would suggest search the VI forum for the keywords VC 2.5 databasse.

A collection of links to look at - http://vmware-land.com/Vmware_Links.html#VI35

Some sample vc 2.5 db upgrade issues
