VSM v5.0 is now available on the Equallogic support website. https://eqlsupport.dell.com
Required PS Series firmware: 9.1 and higherRequired VMware Version
v6.7 Still has Flash support, it is marked as depreciated. Since VSM isn't the only product not yet fully re-written for HTML5.
I am currently running VSM 4.6. Can I upgrade the virtual appliance to 5.0.1? The installation guide shows upgrading from version 4.7, but I cannot determine if 4.7 is a minimum requirement.
Yes you should be able to update directly to the new version.
FYI: v5.0.1 has been released and should be used instead of v5.0.
re: Upgrade The guide only shows upgrading from v4.7. to 5.0.0/5.0.1. Either way you should create a VMware snapshot before upgrading as a precaution.
