vSphere 5.5 Hardening Guide - GA released

Hi,

I’m happy to report that the vSphere 5.5 Hardening Guide has been released for General Availability. My thanks to all that contributed their feedback to make this happen.

You can download the attached Hardening Guide and Change Log spreadsheets attached to this discussion.

I’m working with the VMware web team to have the guide and the change log officially moved over to the Hardening Guide page on VMware.com. I will update this discussion when that has been completed.

I'm not aware of any subscription.. It doesn't change very often.

To answer the question of a 5.5 U3 HG, no, there are no plans for one.
