Upgrade Virtual Center to U1

Jump to solution

I need to upgrade my Virtual Center to match my ESX4 U1 servers. There do not seem to be many complaints about bad Virtual Center server upgrades. Is it really as easy as running the setup and rebooting? Our envorionemnt is fully HA.

As far as I remember there is even no need to reboot vCenter server. Just a little outage on vCenter service.

HA will continue to work without vCenter.

I upgraded all the vCenter components from 4.0 to 4.0 U1 on Saturday. Everything went very smoothly.

Well that went smoothly. First thing this week. You can tell I am paranoid but it seems so many windows based updates go south so easily.

Thanks for the help.
