VMware released Update 4 for ESX 3.5 after a week or so ago releasing U4 for vCenter 2.5. Normally, I would be quick to blog about these releases, and even try them out as upgrades. But I haven’t done an upgrade of VMware since ESX 3.5 and VC 2.5 were released many moons ago. To be honest I can’t keep up with VMware’s dizzying releases of U1, U2, U3 and U4.
Anyway, this peaked my interest because there’s a gapping hole in my new book about vSphere4 – upgrading. So this week I rebuilt my environment so works on ESX 3.5 U4 and vCenter 2.5 U4 – and I’m trying my first ever upgrade. Yikes!
