[THIN] Re: OT: VMWare ESX v2.5 is released

I can create a mailing list at freelists for you Ron and then make a separate 
DB for you for archives for just that list and make it searchable for you via 
cold fusion if you want.

Contact me off list about it if you are interested.

Yeah I mean maybe even go with thinlists. We could tie it into
VMguru.com

Citrix has their online forums which are sometimes useful but I usually
find better solutions in the THIN archives.

.If we can produce a Virtualization list that is anywhere even close to
the great resource the THIN list is, then I would be delighted.

ThinFan's right (good job)
Obviously a lot of VMware users out here. 

BTW, I don't mind the community but anyone on this list find it useful
to have a list like this for VMware? I mean I just like the e-mail use
better than the online forum.

That's correct:

Upgrading from a Tar Archive 

If you are using the downloaded tar archive, note the filename of the
download file and make appropriate substitutions in the file and
directory names shown below.
Note: Using the tar archive, upgrading directly from releases prior to
ESX 2.0 is not supported.

Reboot into linux.
/sbin/reboot
Log in as root. 
Make a directory named download (or use another name of your choice.)
This directory must be accessible to the service console on the server
you want to upgrade.
Save the file esx-2.5.0-11343-upgrade.tar.gz to this directory. 
Change to the download directory. 
Extract the contents of the file.
tar zxf esx-2.5.0-11343-upgrade.tar.gz
Change to the directory esx-2.5.0-10771-upgrade.tar. 
Run the upgrade script.
./upgrade.pl
You see various messages about the upgrade process. 
When prompted, reboot the system. When the system reboots, you are
finished upgrading VMware ESX Server.
