> Currently the installation guide has a section for patching/upgrading XenServer hosts
(Upgrading XenServer Versions). It would be good to have a documented procedure for patching/upgrading
vSphere as well. The following procedure has been verified by QA.
> 1. Unmanage the cluster in CloudStack. This can be done from the CloudStack UI.
> 2. Do the following 3 steps for each of the ESXi hosts (2.a followed by 2.b, and 2.c)
in the cluster:
> 2.a. Move each of the ESXi hosts in the cluster to maintanance mode and ensure all the
VMs get migrated to other hosts in that cluster. If there is only 1 host in that cluster,
shutdown all VMs and move the host into maintenance mode.
> 2.b. Apply the patch on the ESXi host. Reboot the host if required.
> 2.c. Move the host out of maintenance mode.
> 3. Manage the cluster in CloudStack. This can be done from the CloudStack UI.
> 4. Verify the host state is properly synchronized and updated in the Cloudstack database
(or via UI... state should be "Up"). 
> Release Planning:
> Dev list discussion: N/A
> Functional Spec: N/A
> Feature Branch: review board submission
> QA: review during doc review for release
