vCenter Agent Upgrade during 5.0 to 5.1 upgrade

Jump to solution

I was hoping someone can answer a question for me please regarding vCenter Agent Upgrade

When choosing the vCenter Agent Upgrade, Would choosing automatic require the hosts to be rebooted? I assume the answer is no, but would like your verification. I have attached a print screen for you to see.

What is best practice, Automatic or manual. I have 1 datacenter, 3 clusters. 1 cluster 5.0 other 2 clusters 4.1

reboot is not required..

If you choose manual you have to goto each host and then re-connect the host so that the VPXA agent gets upgraded and connected back to the vCenter

I would like to recommend VPXA agent automatic.It will upgrade the agent on the hosts automatically and hosts will get added to VC successfully.

Thanks,
