Hi,

Can any one please let me know, do we need to certify our new Hardware with both ESX and ESXi or only with ESXi?

Please respond.

Thanx in advance.

If you're a hardware vender you can certify both or either one. ESX 4.1 is the last release of ESX so going forward there will just be ESXi to certify. You might want to check out the server program here https://www.vmdev.net/.

Are you clicking on a link on this page - http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/microsite.do or doing a search and then selecting a link. If you're doing a search, what are the search terms and what link do you click?

The error indicates that the thread is in a forum to which you don't have access. But in that case it shouldn't show up in the search list. I'll follow up on why it is appearing in your search results.
