ESX 2.5 to ESX 3.0
Posted by martijnl on September 17, 2006
After I edited my earlier post about the PowerConvert licenses I noticed that I hadn’t talked earlier about existing ESX servers in our serverpark. To clarify: these are stand-alone ESX 2.5 servers that are managed by a group of admins that specifically does development servers. We have a number of in-house development teams and some of their development environments are on those boxes. The rest is R&D related.
Although we would like to get them into the Virtual Center Management server for management purposes we will probably upgrade them to VI3 and leave them alone.
This is something that we feel is better to decide by the end of the migration project as we will have more experience in seperating different environments within the Virtual Infrastructure. For now they will be left alone.
