VMware, Versions, Updates and Builds

Last Update: May, 29th 2011.

Just an example, a customer has VMware Data Recovery version 1.1. However, you experience that version 1.1 is not always doing the job as expected and consider upgrading to the latest version 1.2. The release notes tells you that VMware Data Recovery 1.2 can be used with VMware vSphere 4.0 Update 2 or vSphere 4.1. First you check the ESX host, which reports: ESX 4.0.0 Build 208167 and you have no idea, whether the ESX host is ESX 4.0, 4.0 Update 1 or Update 2.

Another useful VMware document, vSphere Software Compatibility Guide is entirely based on the Version and Update strategy.

I know, a lot of blogposts have been dedicated to this subject. I have once seen an excellent overview of all VMware products, versions, updates and build. Unfortunately I can’t retrieve it. If anyone knows what I mean, please respond.

For my own convenience, hereby my overview of VMware products, versions and Buildnumbers.
