During the first maintenance window, after you upgrade View Connection Server, you can also upgrade View Composer and vCenter Server, which are hosted on the same virtual or physical machine.


When you migrate View Composer and vCenter Server to a new machine, you can use the same host name and IP address on the new machine, or you can change the host name, the IP address, or both.

If you change the host name or IP address, however, you might not be able to recompose View Composer desktop pools, even after you upgrade the parent virtual machine to View 5.0 Agent. Change the vCenter Server host name or IP address only if you are willing to recreate View Composer desktop pools after the upgrade.
