  • 1.  ESXi and vCenter Compatibility

    Posted Mar 21, 2022 06:19 PM

    Hello,

    I have an ESXi 7.0 U2 with build number 17630552.

    In a few days I will be deploying a vcenter 7.0. Checking the compatibility matrix I found that ESXi is compatible with vcenter 7.0 version U3 and U2.

    Being compatible with the U3 and U2 version, does it also apply to the U2a, U2b, U2c, U3a version?

    What you do notice in the compatibility matrix is that ESXi 7.0 U2 is not compatible with vcenter 7.0 U3c.

    Hello,

    For my personal culture, could you tell me where you found this information, because a vCenter 7.0 seems to be able to manage ESXIs in version 6.5.
    Have you read this document   vCenter Server Upgrade Compatibility

    Hello,

     

    Thank you for your screenshot, because I had this compatibility matrix but it did not send me any information


    It seems strange, but I rather have the impression that this matrix is not up to date


    Because when I ask him for the ESXIs compatible with the vCenter 7.0 U3 he tells me all the versions of ESXI up to 6.5

    On the other hand, when I ask him for ESXIs compatible with vCenter 7.0 U3c, he returns no "Data"...

    This vCenter would not be compatible with any ESXI

    Hello,

    then it means that the esxi if it is compatible with the versions of vcenter U2a, U2b, U3a and could deploy any of these versions of vcenter

    Except vcenter version 7.0 U3c

    Hi,

    If there is no ESXI compatible with this version of vCenter, it is certainly due to a problem with updating the Interoperability platform.

    A version of vCenter should be at least compatible with several versions of ESXIs. But on this point,  I prefer to let experts on the subject answer.
