Upgrade from 5.5 Update 2 to 5.5 Update 3?

Jump to solution

I am currently running vCenter 5.5 Update 2 (5.5 Build 2183111), and I need to upgrade to 5.5 Update 03 (to resolve some issues with SAN performance, according to Tech Support); not sure if all my hardware is certified for 6.0, hence the 5.5 U3.

I am in the process of wading through the vCenter Installation and Setup Manual, but I thought I would double check here. If I am not making any changes to my current environment (i.e., no changes to Single SignOn, no changes to the databse, etc), this is pretty much just run setup, and choose the Simple Install (I'm pretty sure that's what I chose last time). Then run the other upgrade components - Update Manager, ESXi Dump Collector, Syslog. And then all the ESXi hosts.

Am I correct that nothing major has changed (in the upgrade process) from 5.5 U2 to 5.5U3? Especially if you use the Simple Install method? It should all Just Work, yes?

Thanks

The process has hot changed from Update 2 to Update 3, anyway I will recommend you use the Custom install instead of Simple, since some times the Simple install wizards close/finish without confirm that everything was upgraded, because of this, do the staged upgrade, doing one component at time.
