    Upgrade standalone ESXi host from 5.5 to 6.5

    ngwendk Novice

      Pls advise, I have 2 separate standalone ESXi hosts that are currently running ESXi 5.5. These are IBM HS22 and IBM HS23 physical blade servers. They are not clustered, just standalone individual ESXi hosts. I'm about upgrade the ESXi hosts directly to ESXi 6.5, by choosing the "(x) Upgrade ESXi, preserve VMFS datastore" option. I just need to confirm if i will be able to powerup my VMs, after the upgrade is done, with no issues whatsoever? whether the VMs will be able to run or will be compatible to the newer upgraded ESXi hypervisor version? Thanks
