any ideas where I download the vCenter Server 4 foundation from? I finnaly found all thevCenter4u1 links but no foundation listed
VMware Infrastructure 3.x Foundation is VMware vSphere 4 Standard now.
I have a vCenter server as a VM, we've got 2 ESX hosts and they are connected to a san
I'll start with the vcenre update and then go onto a Host update - can I update one host and have the HA/vmotion still work or will that only go between the same versions of esx?
isit worth doing a snapshot of the vcenter server before updating it?
It can never harm to do a snapshot, but a rollback can make things worse. Especially if you run other services on your Virtual Center box.
Good resource for upgrade info can be found here, also includes upgrade training videos.
VMware vSphere Upgrade Center Resources for Cloud Computing
in process of upgrading atm... the VI Client/server upgrade went smoothly and first of the ESX boxes is now upgrading
EDIT: Bugger... in the ESX upgrade process I have got a:
Edit: Edit: For anyone who gets this error then make sure you have the memory execute thingy enabled in BIOS and also make sure you have VT enabledTSC: 34771057 cpu0 :0)Init: 461: The Execute Disable/No Execute CPU feature is not enabled for this machine.
thanks for everyones help on this one - one host upgraded and happy, one to go

ok... not good... any advice welcome...
I've got my vcenter updated and the ESX host are at version 4... however I haven't got the tools updated on all of them yesterday and one of the hosts dropped off over night and the hosts didn't migrate to the other host. I have the host that went down up but it's still showing as disconnected. and all servers that were on there are showing disconnected and I cant migrate them manually!
VM's moved over... DNS issue somehow - I Know why!! we had an engineer in who yesterday stopped the DNS running on the server my Vcenter points at
changed vCenters dns to a different box and all was fine
still have a host not showing maycome around sometime soon - can ping IP - may reboot again in a second
