Solaris 11

The release of vSphere 5.1 introduces support for Solaris 11 on ESXi 5.1, with the following support considerations:

  • Installation instruction can be found here http://partnerweb.vmware.com/GOSIG/Solaris_11.html
  • The LSI Logic SAS storage adapter is not recommended due to defects in the driver distributed with the operating system and the work around is to use the LSI Logic (parallel) storage adapter.

For more information about software support, please check the VMware Compatibility Guide
