You must connect the server, whre the vcenter is running to the netwotk.

Then start the upgrade once again.

actual my idea was to upgrade vcenter 2.5 on virtual pc first before doing it on production vcenter 2.5

because last time when i upgrade vc2.5 to update 4 that time i did the same i tested upgrade on virtual pc when it upgrade successfully then i upgrade prodution vc and it worked fine.

main intention to like this is it some thing goes wrong while upgradation i will not lose my physical production server

Don' worry about hr upgrade.

Just make a bakcup of the databases:

-vcenter

-master

-msdb

and make the upgrade.

I did it a lot of time with customers and hadn't got any big problems.
