  1. I upgraded my VCenter and esxi host to 5.5 U3 ..

  2. “In your vSphere environment, you need to update vCenter Server to vCenter Server 5.5 Update 3b before updating ESXi to ESXi 5.5 Update 3b. vCenter Server will not be able to manage ESXi 5.5 Update 3b hosts, if you update ESXi before updating vCenter Server to version 5.5 Update 3b. “

  3. Thanks, a very useful site. I appreciate it very much! Keep up the great work!

  4. Thanks for useful information. No joking.
    We always do vCenter upgrade then hosts however this is problem-free advice.

    Keep posting such!
