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
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!
Yes, that should be the correct sequence.
