VMware’s John Troyer revealed on Twitter a couple of hours ago a “search-able hardware compatibility guide” for VMware ESX and VMware View:
This online Hardware Compatibility Guide web application was released on December 10, 2008. To learn more about benefits and usage of this tool, please see “Help on Searching”.
This online Hardware Compatibility Guide replaces the former Hardware Compatibility Guides for systems, I/O devices, and SAN arrays for ESX 3.0 and greater versions, as well as VMware View Client. For compatibility guides of other VMware products or earlier ESX releases and VMware View Client, please use the “Other Documents” tab.
Check it out.
I would love to see some additions, for instance “supported path policy” for Storage. (MRU/Fixed) (The MRU/Fixed is actually there but you have to click on the model and then details before you see it.) But also supported versions of Software Agents for the Service Console would be a real welcome! It’s a big step forward again, and according to John they are still working on it and it will evolve over the next months.
