    Different ESXi Host Versions on the Protected and Recovery Sites

    mc1903cae Enthusiast



      I have found the "Heterogeneous Configurations on the Protected and Recovery Sites" information on docs.vmware.com, but it doesn't cover having different ESXi host versions.


      Can anyone tell me if it is OK to have a newer ESXi host version on the protected site, where the host hardware is not identical between both sites? The protected site host hardware will support ESXi 6.7 U2 but the recovery site host hardware will only support ESXi 6.5 U2.


      I am hoping this is OK, as long as the VM virtual hardware version for replicated VM's on the protected site is set to a level that is compatible with the recovery site?


      Any advice?
