ScaleIO 2.5 Upgrade advice

I’m getting into ScaleIO (Software Only) so am still quite new to the ecosystem and management commands, but having just gone through an upgrade cycle to the 2.5 release (from a later version than 2.0.0.1) I thought I’d note down my experience from doing a ScaleIO 2.5 upgrade and some things that might be useful to anyone else who does this.

Please note that this is just me experience and I am not to be considered a guru in all things ScaleIO. I’m happy to be corrected and educated 🙂

MDM certificates

Ensure these are accepted before you begin otherwise you’ll have to accept them and restart. Not a big deal, but just one of those nice things for a smooth process 🙂
