DRS Cluster: Can you mix ESX 4.1 and ESXi 4.1?

Jump to solution

Not very complext but we have a DRS cluster of 8 IBM x3850 hosts on ESX 4.1 and we are going to upgrade them one at a time to ESXi 4.1 update 1.  Will there be any issues mixing a cluster of ESX and ESXi servers?

yes, 100% supported!  both are the same hypervisor, so you should have no issues running both in the same cluster.  After all the is the best way to do a rolling upgrade, and is how we performed our move from ESX to ESXi.
