I will be upgrading a few vCenter environments to 6.5 from 5.0, 5.5 and 6.0.  I have a few questions I was hoping someone could help me with.

  1. Are there any know issues with hosts running 6.5?
  2. Is there any documentation for dealing with vCenters that have been upgraded?
  3. Are there any migration tools?
  4. Are there required software revs to be at for the following?
    1. VMware
    2. Barracuda
    3. Backup Agents
  5. After upgrading VMware are there any issues with restoring since the vmdks were backed-up in 5.x and restored to 6.5?
  6. Will there be any problems or limitations to restores from 5.x to 6.5?
