Powerpath Upgrade

/ Comments off

I was looking into this a short while ago – after updating the hosts to Update 4.01.


This VMware KB – 1018740 will show you the way.

Download the the Powerpath/VE 5.4 SP1 package from Powerlink

  1. Re: Powerpath upgrade to 5.2 I have see more issues on Windows 2003 upgrading from older versions of PowerPath to version 5.2 than I ever did upgraded older versions to 5.1. New installations seem to work fine, but the upgrades are hit or miss so far for me.
  2. Feb 07, 2013 To resolve the problem, you need to run the executable from the command line and add a few parameters. The name of the Powerpath install file will vary depending on the version you are installing, but the command looks like this: EMCPower.Net32.signed.5.3.b310.exe /v”/L.v C: logs PPremove.log NOREBOOT=1 PPREMOVE=ALL”.
  3. PowerPath logical device, managing PowerPath, or removing PowerPath from the host. Upgrade PowerPath? Upgrading PowerPath on page 81 for pre-requisites and procedures to upgrade PowerPath. Troubleshoot PowerPath? Troubleshooting PowerPath on page 91 for procedures to resolve problems while installing and administering PowerPath. Getting started.
  4. Plan to install or upgrade PowerPath at a convenient time to minimize disruption to the site. Activate the license PowerPath/VE for Windows Hyper-V and PowerPath for Windows require separate licenses. However, the licensing process for PowerPath/VE for Windows Hyper-V is the same as the licensing process for PowerPath for Windows.

Solution Enabler, HBA driver/firmware, Naviagent, switch firmware, storage Ucode and ECC agents will never notice your upgrade AFAIK PowerPath is a very specific and special piece of software targetting a special and specific need. Almost every other product you mentioned will simply use powerpath if present but will never 'depend' on it.

(if you are looking for the document location manually - Home > Support > Software Downloads and Licensing > Downloads P-R > PowerPath for VMware).

Once the package is downloaded extract the zip package to a folder which is accessible to a web browser.

Once you confirm that the package is accessible from a web browser – you are ready to go.

The beauty of it all is that this can be done in Update Manager.

We then create a new Host Extension Baseline to deploy the package
