vcmp guest shutdown before chassis upgarde

Hi all,

i am planning to upgrade viprion chassis to new version.Before upgrade i think we have to manually shutdown vcmp guests(configured state) and then make them up(deployed state) once chassis get booted with new code.My question is when we shut down the guests and then make them up post chassis upgarde will the running configuration be there on guests by default ?

I am not sure if I understand correctly. Guests config files do not located on host. They are located on virtual disks. Virtual disks partition is shared across boot locations.

After vcmp host upgrade, the config on the guests should remain.

if you has any changes made via cli then yes, since such changes does not reflected in config files automatically.

It is better to get fresh UCS files from all the guests and host and download them to your PC prior doing any changes.
