Been a while since I upgraded something so I spent some time friday evening (wooo the excitment) upgraded my ESXi 3.5 system to the 4.0 release.  The upgrade was pretty easy and straight-forward with the instructions on vm-help.com.  Fortunately, VMWare makes the vSphere client and updata utility an easy download now so you can skip the steps about manually extracting it from the ESXi 4.0 upgrade file before starting.  Remember to backup your virtual machines just to be on the safe side.

The next upgrades now will be Wordpress 2.8 (easy!) and upgrade to Fedora 11 (not too hard).  Stay tuned!
