      Hi,

       

      are the steps to migrate from 5.5 to 6.5 with non-stop clustering?

       

      Only with HA, without DRS.

       

      It is?

       

      1 - Install new vCenter 6.5

      2 - Create datacenter;

      3 - Create cluster;

      4 - Add host A in version 5.5 in the vCenter 6.5 cluster;

      5 - Add host B in version 5.5 in the vCenter 6.5 cluster;

      6 - Install Update Manager;

      7 - Import ISO to Update Manager;

      8 - Migrates servers from host A to host B;

      9 - Put host A on maintenance;

      10 - Apply new version via Update Manager on host A;

      11 - Remove host A from maintenance;

      11 - Migrate servers from host B to host A already with the new version;

      12 - Place host B in maintenance;

      13 - Apply new version via Update Manager on host B;

      14 - Remove host B from maintenance;

      15 - Balancing servers between hosts.

       

      Thank you.
