Performing an offline upgrade from ESX 3.x to ESX 4.0 on a local ESX host

June 10, 2009

VsphereWhilst looking through a few KBs on the VMware support portal, I come across this KB which I had not previously seen. Anyone had a go ?

This knowledge base article provides information on the esxupgrade.sh script and instructions on how to upgrade from ESX 3.x to ESX 4.0 by using this script. The esxupgrade.sh script provides a way to upgrade an ESX 3.x host that does not have network access. If the host has network access, you can use the vSphere Host Update Utility or VMware vCenter Update Manager to perform the upgrade.The esxupgrade.sh script is a self-contained upgrade application that is packaged in the esxupgrade-4.0.0-164009.zip file. Use the upgrade script with the ESX 4.0 installation DVD or ISO file to upgrade an ESX 3.x host to ESX 4.0.
The KB Article can be read here.
