Virtualization Technology: VMware vSphere 5.0 Upgrade
eWEEK Labs is using the final vSphere 5.0 code in the lab today. While there isn't a "general availability date that I can discuss, I can show you what's happening during our upgrade. To begin, I updated two physical hosts (an HP DL360 G6 and an HP DL380 G6) that had been running vSphere 4.1. I also added a third server, an Acer AR380 F1 on which I installed vSphere 5.0 from scratch. After upgrading and installing vSphere 5.0 ESXi on the hosts systems, we then upgraded our shared storage from VMFS-3 to VMFS-5.
