ESX and Lab Manager Environment

Hi

At present we are running ESX 4 update 2 and Lab Manager 4.0.1 in our environment. We are planning to upgrade ESX to ESXi 4.1 update 1 and Lab manager to 4.0.3. I guess ny question is, is there a prefered update path? As should Lab Manager be upgraded  first or ESX. Or doesnt it matter?

Thanks for helping out.

Cheers

Considering that the path would actually be a complete reinstall and not an upgrade on your ESX hosts then I would assume that there is nothing special you need to do.  I would advise that you make sure your vCenter version is up to speed as far as the release notes go for Lab Manager and proceed in that direction.
