UPCOMING CHANGES TO THE SERVER-ON-DEMAND ENVIRONMENT

In the next few weeks a major change in the Server-On-Demand environment
will occur. The entire ETS/SOD infrastructure will be upgraded to vSphere 5.0.  On November 20th, victor.asu.edu will be ugraded to vCenter 5.0.  During this time all VMs will remain functional, but they will not be able to be managed during the upgrade.  On December 3rd, the ESX hosts will start to be upgraded to ESXi 5.0 in a rolling ugrade process.  The VMs on a host to be upgraded will be migrated off, the host upgraded and then VMs migrated back.  No service interruption of the VMs should occur during this process. The ESX upgrade will occur over a three week period.
