    You have one blog entry stating how to update a 5.1 vCenter Server instance. Is the process pretty much the same to go from vCenter server 5.5 update 1b to this update (2d)?

    Something like this?:

    Update vCenter Single Sign On
    Reboot
    Update VMware vCenter Inventory Service
    Update VMware vCenter Server
    Update VMware vSphere Web Client
    Update VMware vSphere Update Manager

    I assume we should backup the database first. Any other gotchas or is it pretty much a straight forward "run the msi's" type of deal? Thanks!
