VMware releases version 6 of ESX

vSphere Hypervisor version 6

vSphere Hypervisor version 6

I’m still running 5.5 at the office, so I guess it’s a matter of hooking up a monitor, dumping my VMs, and trying the upgrade and hoping it doesn’t destroy everything…

You can download it here, for free as in beer.

What is there to tell? I’ve loved UNIX like things since I was first exposed to QNX in highschool (we had the Unisys ICONS!), and spent the better time of my teenage years trying to get my own UNIX… I should have bought Coherent in retrospect.. Anyways latched onto Linux in 1992, and then got some old BSD admin books and have been hooked on the VAX BSD & other big/ancient things since…!

  1. The step from 5.5 to 6.0 is not quite as simple as the previous updates (like 5.0->5.1 or 5.1->5.5). You should definitely read the few KB articles that are mentioned in the release notes for some caveats.

    And don’t forget to upgrade your vCenter to 6.0 first

    I suggest putting the host in maintenance mode and simply do a fresh installation with 6.0
