vSphere and Nutanix upgrade


Badge
purchased 7/15/2016
setup/install 10/24/2016 (by Nutanix tech)
office move 4/1/2017 (late april, power outage in San Francisco financial district, was on bus on way to work when power went out, never got to shutdown Nutanix cluster properly, next morning powered up cluster and ran fine. Awesome! no issues since then)

hardware:
2 NX-8235-G5
1 NX-8135-G5
NOS: 4.7.2
NCC: 2.3.0
BIOS: 20160516
BMC: 03.28

hypervisor:
VMware vCenter Server 5.5 Update 2e
(vSphere on Windows Server 2008 R2)


I need to upgrade vSphere from 5.5 U2e to whatever latest version of 6.5 and also Nutanix NOS 4.7.2 to 5.5.8
Do I:
1 - upgrade VMware to 6.5 then upgrade Nutanix to 5.5.8
or
2 - upgrade Nutanix to 5.5.8 then upgrade VMware to 6.5
or
3 - upgrade VMware to compatible intermediate version and then upgrade Nutanix to compatible intermediate version. upgrade VMware to 6.5 and then upgrade Nutanix to 5.5.8
or
4 - upgrade Nutanix to compatible intermediate version and then upgrade VMware to compatible intermediate version. then upgrade Nutanix to 5.5.8 and then upgrade VMware to 6.5

note: at time of Nutanix setup 10/24/2016, I was a part-time contractor. as of 4/1/2018, I'm only contracted for 40 hours of remote-only work, but work onsite when needed for special projects.
