The *day* that I finally got vROps upgraded from 6.0.2 to 6.1 was the exact same day that the 6.2 upgrade came out! VMware has assured me that the process for going from 6.1 to 6.2 will be less painful… Let’s find out!

So in summary, the upgrade from 6.1 to 6.2 was *significantly* easier than the upgrade from 6.0.2 to 6.1. Obviously a lot of cleanup was performed during the 6.0 -> 6.1 upgrade, so if we were still in the “messy” pre-6.1 state (which we cleaned up in the previous article) then going from 6.0.2 to 6.2 might not have been as easy.
