I'm attempting to upgrade our existing CVG virtual appliance running on esxi 4.0 from hiveos 5.1r4a to 6.1r6.  The release notes say to log into the CLI and pick some options from a menu.  When I log into my CVG (using the assigned read/write admin account I set in HMOL, since admin/aerohive did not work to log into the CLI) I just get a command prompt and not the wizard menu.

What are you trying to do from the CLI menu?  The primary intent of the menu is to assign an IP address to the unit and get the virtual machine activated (which ties a MAC address and serial number to the CVG VM).

You should not need the menu thereafter.  

You can upgrade the CVG from HMOL in the same way that you would upgrade an AP.

It's a 32 bit machine.  The instructions say to turn it off, give it more ram and another cpu core, turn it back on, and navigate through the menus: " Enter 3 - 2 - 2 to navigate to Advanced Product Configuration > Configure VM Params > Change VM 
Params, and then enter 1024 (for 1 GB)."  If there's some other way of doing it, that'd be fine too.

Those instructions are for HiveManager virtual machines, not the CVG.
