    Hi chris

    I am facing a strange issue, for my client we upgraded vsphere5U2 to 5.5, but we are facing a strange issue. We upgraded the vcenter first and in few days our esxi hosts management ip and vlan details in the portgroup is changed automatically. The vmotion and esxmgmt is in the same vswitch and actually we can see this vmotion port group ip and vlan is copied and applied to the esxi management port group automatically.
    we have opened a case with vmware and they are investigating as usual now one week no proper reply they said for them also this is new.
    If you faced or heard anything like this please let me know…

    Great post, Chris! We have been putting off the 5.5 upgrade in our production until a full update has been released. I’m still running 5.0 in my lab. Will definitely be using your post when I upgrade!

    vsphere/vcenter have become a roach motel. It use to be that we’d jump on the latest and greatest version almost immediately but now we’d have to wait at least 6mos before we upgrade. new capabilities breed new bugs. Things are not that simple any longer.

    Thanks for the post Chris. Recently, we had to go through the vCenter upgrade on the new Win Server 2012 R2 OS and other than gotchas with vDS, the upgrade processes was smooth.

    Hi, I have SSO, Inventory service & vCenter 5.1 running on separate servers. I need to upgrade them on 5.5 with all components running on single server (on vCenter server). I tried upgrading SSO on my Vcenter server however for obvious reasons it did not detect previous version of sso on same server and proceed with installation.
    How could I upgrade them while consolidating them on single machine.
