Today we bring you a video which demonstrates downgrading from VMware Workstation Pro 12.x to VMware Workstation 11.x including changing the virtual hardware of your virtual machines.
VMware Workstation Pro 12.x and VMware Workstation 11.x use different virtual machine hardware compatibility. When downgrading Workstation, you must change the virtual machine hardware compatibility version of your virtual machine to Workstation 11.0.
We’ve just put the finishing touches on a new video which discusses how to confirm ESX and ESXi host hardware compatibility using the VMware Hardware Compatibility Guides, which are available here.
You can use the VMware Hardware Compatibility Guides to confirm whether or not your particular server, system, HBA, network card, or other peripheral devices are certified and compatible for use with specific vSphere ESX and ESXi versions.
This is the second video for today which was produced in conjunction with Mike Foley who is a Senior Technical Marketing Manager at VMware. These videos should be of some help to those of you that are faced with SSL certificate creation tasks relating to vSphere 6. This video discusses and demonstrates Issuing a 3rd party SSL certificate to vCenter while using vSphere VMCA to issue certificates to ESXi which should be of special interest to anyone who has ever asked the question “How do I replace the “external” SSL certificate of vCenter but still use VMCA in default mode?”
Mike has provided additional information and context around this exact topic over on his blog here.
