So I’m always trying to correlate versions of ESXi or vCenter Server to the build numbers…. mainly when I’m running a health check and I need to determine what version of VM hardware or VMware Tools should be deployed for the version the customer is running.
Anyways, I thought I’d share the webpages that I always refer back to.
For VMware ESXi Release and Build numbers, visit: http://www.virten.net/vmware/esxi-release-build-number-history/
For vCenter Server Release and Build numbers, visit: http://www.virten.net/vmware/vcenter-release-and-build-number-history/
To determine what version of VMware Tools you should be running against the version of ESXi you have deployed, visit: http://packages.vmware.com/tools/versions
And finally, to determine what version of VM Hardware against the version of ESXi, visit: http://kb.vmware.com/kb/1003746
