Win server 2019 esxi 5.5

Ciao a tutti, ho provato ad installare Win server 2019 in un ambiente esxi 5.5. L'installazione è andata a buon fine, i vmware tools sono stati installati correttamente e non mi sembra ci siano errori.

Qualcuno ha esperienze a riguardo?

anche se l'installazione è andata bene vmware dice che per win server 2019 serve esxi 6

Grazie

Federico

It cannot be a “supported” configuration since ESXi 5.5 itself is no longer supported.

The same is true for ESXi 6.0 from next month.

This doesn’t necessarily mean it will work or not work, it just can’t be supported.

See page 112 for Windows Server 2019: https://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/pdf/VMware_GOS_Compatibility_Guide.pdf

And here's the ESXi support lifecycle: https://www.vmware.com/content/dam/digitalmarketing/vmware/en/pdf/support/product-lifecycle-matrix.p...
