    Upgrade from ESXi (free) to ESX

    mm1250 Novice

      Hello,

       

      I have a new server coming in Monday and I'll be putting ESXi Free Edition.  I have plans over the next 6-8months to upgrade to full paid version of ESX (vSphere Is it?).  I plan for this to be a in-place upgrade(use same box).  Is this going to be a tough task or does VMware have a easy upgrade path?  Server is a ML150 G6, 2xE5506 CPU, 12GB RAM. 2x250GB SATA HDD w/ RAID 1 on Smart Array P410. I plan to put 3Vms on it.

       

       

       

      Also, Does ESXi support dual CPUs? I have 2 physical CPus each are Quadcores.
