    I have several vm's all different types of OS's but mainly I'm seeing what the best path would be to upgrade vmnic's to VMXnet3, vmhardware is all over the place as well as vmtools. Were on vCenter Server 5.5 Update 2b. So to recap need to upgrade vnic to vmxnet3 for all win svr 2008 and 2012 vms, vm hardware to 10, and vmtools.Just need correct steps please.

    The order would be:

    - update vmware hardware to latest

    - update vmware tools to latest

    - change NIC to vmxnet3

    Does that answer your question?
