There's no update. You have to download and install the new version.

Hey Ollie, isn't it beer-thirty in Germany right now Smiley Wink

Hey drop me a line at my email address, eric@bost.com (work) or esiebert7625@yahoo.com (personal). I'm trying to put together my own personal contact list for us frequent posters.

if I install the new version, will this damage my existing VM (put alot of effort in it already)?

Difficult question Smiley Wink

If all of your VMs are running fine and you don't have any need of the new "features" (Server 1.02 and 1.03 are

maintenance releases) I don't see a reason why you should update immediately.

If you have issues I would at least give it a try - you can revert to 1.01 by simply reinstalling.

There are some security issues to consider: http://www.vmware.com/support/server/doc/releasenotes_server.html
