Anyone out there running 10.1.99 on VMWARE 6.5?
I am at VMWARE 6.5 and am working fine under 10.0, but...I cannot upgrade my vmware to 6.7 in a short period of time. What has been your experience?
my env runs with 6.0 without problems. A few people use also older versions.
The "problem" is as follows:
VMWARE decided not to support FreeBSD12 (the underlying OS) for older versions of ESXi.
Older FreeBSD versions are unsupported by FreeBSD, so a decision had to be made.
Since you can upgrade from 6.x to 6.7 without any licensing issue this were the way which is the smartest one.
Here is a KB on this topic.
As with any upgrade, make sure to make a full backup and off load it from the appliance.
I just started at a new company that uses the K1000 and K2000. I took over the administration of the appliance to include upgrades etc. I am in the process of spinning up a dev environment to test the upgrades beforehand. Aside from the official answers provided above, there haven't been any issues with running 10.0.290 (I know you noted 10.0 is also running fine) in our VMWare 6.5 setup. My next step is to restore the backup of our production environment to the dev box and then upgrade to 10.1.99. I suspect it will run just fine, we just won't have the benefit of it being supported. When I proceed with the upgrade and if it blows up I will let you know! :)
