Nutanix recently released the 5.0 code, and it has a lot of new really nice features. In a future post I plan on going over some of the features, and detail why they are so important.
Before you start upgrading all of your Nutanix host you should first upgrade Prism Central to 5.0 This server gives you an overview of all your Nutanix clusters and some management capabilities. I am still fairly new to Nutanix so I was not sure how to upgrade Prism Central. Usually you can upgrade from within the Nutanix console, but with this being a brand new release you had to download it directly from the website. Sometime soon in the future it will be a part of the automatic upgrade within the Console.
At first I was a little confused about how to upgrade. You would think there would be a separate upgrade for Prism Central since it was originally a separate install. Instead the update is included in the AOS 5 download. Download the complete AOS 5.0 and also download the Upgrade Metadate File.
Once you have that downloaded everything login to Prism Central. Next click the gear icon and then click upload the Prism Central Binary. Now point it to the AOS 5.0 download and the metadate file. Click upgrade and soon you will be running Prism Central 5.0.
