How to upgrade to VMware vCenter Server 4.1 using the Data Migration tool

Our first video covering vSphere 4.1 is now live. The video compliments KB article 1022137 vSphere 4.1 upgrade pre-installation requirements and considerations. and describes the process for using our Data Migration tool to upgrade VMware vCenter Server 4.1

VMware vCenter 4.1 is part of the VMware vSphere 4.1 product suite and the Data Migration tool allows you to migrate your vCenter Server 4.0 configuration, since VMware has now entirely gone to a 64-bit platform. 64-bit brings significant performance benefits, but it also introduces some challenges that need to be considered before upgrading.

Sit back, grab that cup of java and take in a little KBTV.

  1. In this video, during the restore portion on the new server, it states to have it install SQL Express. Is it possible to specify a SQL server? I have a dedicated SQL server that I would like to put the vCenter and VUM databases on as this is in production not QA.
    Thanks!
