  • 1.  ESXi compatibility checker - Depreciated?

    Posted Jun 04, 2024 05:56 PM

    Hi All,

    I found a helpful post below within the Documentation and Compatibility for vSphere 8 | VMware

    Unfortunatly the direct link takes you to the default Broadcom website, but I also can't manually find the Fling has this been depreciated?

    I have a non-PROD environment with a mix of DELL vxrail/DELL esxi/HP servers that I would be great if I could run the suggested tool against.

    "Note: Many hardware CPUs have been deprecated in vSphere 7 and vSphere 8, and you must verify your hardware devices and details prior to an upgrade. After you gather hardware details, enter them into the Hardware Compatibility Guide to review the supported versions for your hardware, including the necessary firmware and drivers for any peripheral devices you have.

    Automating this process is also possible. VMware recently released a VMware Fling titled ESXi Compatibility Checker. This Fling connects to a vSphere environment and automatically validates your server hardware against the VMware Hardware Compatibility Guide."
