As Nigel Hickey and I present on vSphere Upgrade we are asked questions that seem to have a recurring theme. We thought it would be a great idea to compile them into a central location. These FAQ’s will be a living document and updated over time.


We have FAQ on the following vSphere Upgrade Topics.

  • Deployment Topologies
  • Migration
  • General Upgrade
  • Management Clients
  • Licensing
  • Interoperable Solutions
  • Networking
  • Storage
  • vCenter Server Appliance (VCSA)


You can access the vSphere Upgrade FAQ at the following URL on vSphere Central.
