Vsphere 5. 1 and Virtual Storage Console


We are currently at Vsphere 5.0 using the NetApp Virtual Console 4.0 plug-in to backup and restore VMWare snaps. I want to upgrade to Vsphere 5.1 to enable Windows 2012 servers.  Will I need to reinstall the NetApp plug in?  If so, will I need to reschedule backups and will it see the old backups?



Upgrading to ESXi5.1 shouldnt cause any issues, as the plugin is present on the Virtual Center Server.

VSC 4.1 is now past beta as well. This thread will give you more info:
