How do i upgrade from 3.5 U3 to U4?

Jump to solution

Hi guys

I cant seem to find any guides on how to upgrade from ESXi 3.5 U3 to U4 which was released recently.

I tried to boot from the CD and went through install screens but stopped when I didnt see an Upgrade option, it told me if I continued it would install a new instance and I would lose my VMs.

Any advise please?

Thanks in advanced!

You won't use the CD to upgrade to Update 4. See here if you don't have vCenter - http://www.vm-help.com/esx/esx3i/Patch_3i_without_VC.php

If you have vCenter, then the easiest option is to Update Manager. If you're not using Update Manager, then you can use infrastructure update.
