    Upgrade ESXI 3.5 to ESXi 4.1

      Hej Guys,

       

      i have to upgrade an esxi 3.5 (Build 209095) to VMware ESXi 4.1 Update 3 (Build 800380).

      Here is my Upgrade Procedure.

       

      Upgrade ESXi 3.5 to 4.1 summary:

      • upgrade ESXi 3.5 to 4.0 Update 1
      • upgrade ESXi 4.0 Update 1 to 4.1
      • I cannot upgrade EXSi 3.5 to 4.1 directly using Host Update Utility

        Upgrade procedure:

      1. Download “VMware vSphere Client and Host Update Utility 4.0 Update 1”.  (VMware vSphere Client 4.1 download package does not include Host Update Utility)
      2. Install VMware vSphere Client and Host Update Utility 4.0 Update 1.
      3. Download “Upgrade package from ESXi Server 3.5 to ESXi Server 4.0 Update 1” ZIP package.
      4. Launch Host Update Utility 4.0 to upgrade ESXi Server 3.5 to 4.0 Update 1 with the ZIP package.  This will upgrade ESXi to 4.0.0 build-208167.
      5. Then follow the instruction on “Upgrade vSphere ESXi from 4.0 to 4.1 Using vihostupdate

      My Problem is, that i Can't find this "Upgrade package from ESXi Server 3.5 to ESXi Server 4.0 Update 1” ZIP" package

       

      On my.vmware.com i can't download this package (Unable to process your request. Please try again later.)

       

      Thanks in advance!

       

      My fault, i need this one: upgrade-from-esxi4.0-to-4.1-update03-800380.zip
