Hello Mike,

 

FYI...

 

ESXi 6.5 is still being tested by Nutanix Engineering and is currently not qualified or supported on Nutanix clusters.

Re: vmware 6.5

Art is right, we're still working on 6.5 support internally, making good progress. We'll make a splash about it when it hits.

Your Nutanix/Channel team can give you a more detailed answer privately, but for this public facing forum, best answer we can give is we're working on it (we're a publically traded company now, have to be careful about forward looking statements)

Any News?

Re: vmware 6.5

Any update on when it will be supported? Esxi 6.5 was GA on 11-15-2016

According to the Nutanix FAQ the ball has been dropped.. Kicked and forgotten at this point in time...


WHICH NON-ACROPOLIS HYPERVISORS ARE SUPPORTED?
See the Nutanix Field Installation Guide for supported AOS versions, models supported, and hypervisor versions supported. Nutanix does not support Free ESXi (vSphere Hypervisor).

For vSphere releases:

For Major/Minor vSphere releases (5.0, 5.1, 5.5), our goal is to Support and QA qualify within 90 days of the software GA release date.

Update vSphere/Patch Releases are Supported immediately and our goal is to have them QA qualified within 45 days of the Update GA release date.

We could really use an answer - no news is not good news here...
