Upgrade to vSphere vSphere 4.1 5 - VII

Written by jl on March 27th, 2013

Hello everyone

The last step in the process of upgrading to vSphere 5 is datastores updating our infrastructure. In the version of vSphere 5 a version of the file system called VMFS5 datastores it included (in 4.1 was VMFS3). Among the most notable improvements in this new version we are:

  • Improved Performance and Scalability
  • Increase the limit of a single extension and volume up 64tb
  • The block file size is unified in a single size of 1MB

In addition, the update process VMFS3 to 5 is very simple and fast as we shall see below

One very important thing before starting the upgrade is that all hosts accessing the datastore must be in version 5

Once validated in vCenter, we go to one of the ESXi hosts and select the Configuration tab and storage option

 35_1

Select the datastore you want to update and click on Upgrade to VMFS5

We skip a reminder of what we discussed before that if all hosts have 5 version, and give OK to begin the update

With this last step ended with the update of the different components of the virtual infrastructure.

Until next time

regards
