Upgrading ESXi 5.5u2 to ESXi 6

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Can someone tell me the steps required to upgrade from ESXi 5.5u2 to 6.0.

There seems to be a HP customised build here: https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/details?downloadGroup=OEM-ESXI60GA-HP&productId=491

 

Is that what I should be using?

Once i have the ISO what are the steps?

How much hassle is it doing an upgrade over performing a new build?

 

This will be on a micrserver gen8 with 16Gb ram.

 

What happens to my current RAID datastore (and more importantly the VMs on it)?

 

Many thanks

When you boot you can go into setup and see if the storage controller is set to AHCI or B120i.

the upgrade should be straight forward if using the hp iso, just boot it and it will detect the system and then ask you you want to upgrade and keep the settings or blow them away.

      Hey guys,
       
      Has anyone around here been successful in setting up Proxmox on a Gen8 using a HBA for storage?

      Hey guys,
       
      As of June 2020, what are the latest versions of firmware for HP Microserver Gen8 to be installed on the system itself? Also do any other components have updatable firmware/os-independent software?
       
      So far my list is as follows:
      BIOS - J06 (04/04/2019) iLO 4 - v2.73 (11/02/2020) Intelligent Provisioning - v1.71 (20/02/2019)  
      and I guess the following could also be added (although both out of date):
      Smart Update Manager (HP SUM) - v8.1.0 (21/12/2017) Service Pack for ProLiant (06/11/2017)  
      Date formated as DD/MM/YYYY.
       
      I believe all the B120i Smart Storage stuff is part of Intelligent Provisioning.
