From memory you have to re-setup the PSC back into the AD as the 4.5 upgrade re provisions the PSC and vCenter so the bind to AD is lost.

Hi Garret A couple of things to just be aware of on this as we looked into the external vCenter for our clusters. If you use an external vcenter you cannot perform a straight for "click" update using the VxRAIL manager. You get vCenter licensing with VxRAIL for an internal vCenter not an external so you have to buy it and maintain it. Generating log bundles doesnt work correctly. With the procedure EMC_Troy says its not supported unless you get EMC to do it so be aware of that. So in theory the best way is to rebuild the cluster as that is supported. Hope that helps.

If you have vmotion IP's unique between the 2 clusters and they are within 5ms of each other then just use the fling below: Cross vCenter VM Mobility - CLI

From a customer's perspective 4.5 is not ready yet and I personally wouldn’t go near it until at least it's second revision on the DellEMC support site.
Just to reiterate I would be very very cautious.

I have had the discussion with EMC about this the 4.5 upgrade is going to be a "Customer Engagement" due to the complexity of it. It requires a rolling format of all of the nodes as VSAN gets its upgrade. Do not by any means try and do it yourself as erm.... how to put this lightly...... could completely nerf your entire system!
It all depends on your backend network config really. So P2P, MPLS etc etc. But have a look at Duncan Eppings site yellowbricks.com<http://yellowbricks.com> and also https://pbradz.wordpress.com/... See more...

On this with regards to the vCentre if you need independent recovery (and albeit easier) run a second vCenter. Also regarding creating additional VMkernal ports: “As long as the customer does not touch the original deployed vmk adapters mgmt., vsan and vmotion adding additional VMk or port groups even with TCP/IP stack are not affected as generally they are ignored by our workflows…”

We have this logged with DellEMC at present around the supported config of the kernals and how it would be affected during an automated upgrade. With regards to the bandwidth that all depends on data change/size or replication etc etc could go from 10 meg to 40 gig connections, latency though is always the biggest factor with I think 12ms being the greatest for a stretched cluster now.

As Staye3 says is on the cog (config) then click market if it can get to the internet.... but as it cant then login to the support portal. Under your VxRail there is a package download area and its listed in there. If not you can register a trail and download it: https://www.emc.com/storage/cloudarray/index.htm#!trial_software
