We want to upgrade vCenter 5.0 to 5.1.
vCenter is installed on a virtual machine and is using an Oracle database.
All our ESXi hosts are 5.0 and are using Distributet Switches.
We are using Active Directory to delegate access to vm´s.
Is it possible just to run the Simple Installer installation methode on the vCenter and follow the instructions, and then your done?
Before I make the update, I first make a backup of the vCenter by using Veeam Backup. If the upgrade goes badly wrong, is it then possible to restore the vCenter from backup?
Because I ask, is because I do not know how all our ESXi servers will react when the vCenter upgrade first goes wrong, and then the ESXi servers a little later will be connected to a vCenter from backup.
