I'm running vCenter 5.0 on Server 2008 R2 and would like to put vCenter 5.1 on Server 2012. Can someone confirm or deny the following steps?
- Do in-place upgrade of vCenter 5.0 to 5.1.
- Install fresh vCenter 5.1 install on new Server 2012 VM.
- Migrate database from old VM to new VM.
Alternatively, because my environment is small (2 hosts) I'm also considering just installing 5.1 on a new VM and foregoing the existing 5.0 database. The problem is that I don't know what data I would lose (other than historical performance statistics) and need to reconfigure. What would I need to reconfigure if I went that route?
Any feedback is appreciated.
