Version 4

    Describes changes to the COS for ESX 4.0


    This technical paper discusses incompatibilities between the ESX 3.5 service

    console and the ESX 4.0 service console. Included are suggestions of what you might do to upgrade your

    existing environments that depend on the ESX service console. This document also discusses how you might

    bridge the gap to support ESXi, which does not include a service console. And finally, if you are currently

    writing applications that run in the ESX service console, this document suggests some possible options you

    have for transitioning away from it.
