support for VMware vSphere 6.0

Postby rfg » Fri Mar 20, 2015 8:33

Hello,

VMware vSphere 6.0 is GA since last week. I'm going to deploy 2 new cluster in the next couple of weeks, one with RX300, the other with RX4770. I'd like to install everything with 6.0 (bleeding edge...), thus I' like to know if there is any roadmap when a custom Fujitsu ESXi ISO will be available?

Another thing I noticed. I did some tests with the current 5.5 Image, now I noticed that there are 2 different versions available at VMware and Fujitsu. From what I can see, the FTS Image is more recent than the one at VMware. I guess the Image at the VMware site comes from Fujitsu, so not keep them on sync?

Well, let's try to add comments to all the items...

- FTS's Custom Images normally take 4 to 6 weeks after a VMware release to officially appear.
- When you take your time to look closer at FTS's download site, you'll notice that you can actually also get "Previous versions". There, you will find the image 320-1 (if the Primergy model you chose really is supported for that version), which is currently available at VMware, too. It might take some more time for VMware to actually present FTS's latest 55 version 321-1 on their download pages as well.
- All FTS images come from FTS. VMware does not alter them at all. They're just offering their webspace to host the download files.
- The term "RX300" is insufficient. There are 8 (in words: eight) different generations of "RX300", each which with different capabilities and supported operating systems (versions).

(Ich nehme mir jetzt einfach mal heraus, es mit der englischen Beantwortung zu belassen.)

ok, then I'll have to start with the 5.5 image

I was just a bit confused by the different naming of the files.

We just have bought them and it's the first project we realize with Fujitsu server, it's the R8 generation.
