We are using ESXi 4.1 and we need to move to ESXi 5 as we need VMs for Windows server 2012 and Windows 8.
Our servers are already having VMs. So we want to upgrade without reinstall.
Some people advised to have backup before initiating the process.
But we don't have that much hard disk capacity to backup some where.
Would Upgrade to latest ESXi affect existing VMs? Whether backup is must or it is better to have? [If it is must we must think some other solution]
