Upgrade Options for View 5.1

I have a small VMWare environment for VDI. I have 2 esxi 5.1 hosts, vcenter 5.0, and View 5.1. I would like to get vcenter upgraded to vcenter 6, which I have a spare license for, but I am assuming I would then have to upgrade everything else and no one knows the license info for our view connection server. This is an environment that I inherited, so I have had to do a ton of digging to find anything. I have looked everywhere to try to find the account for my View license but have had no luck. Could I get away with NOT upgrading View if I upgrade to vcenter 6?

The short answer is no. Its not compatible. You need to be at view 6.1 for esxi 6.0.0 or view 6.2.3 which supports 6.0U3.

This happens a lot at small companies as the last IT person or the IT person before the last IT person put a license in their personal email or their own name. I would call your VMware rep they should be able to do a search for all licenses under your companies email domain, then you can redirect that email to your own account and find out what is happening with your licenses. I always encourage people to put that stuff in to a generic email address so it doesn't end up in the wind.
