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

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.
