Open Manage and VM Ware 5

Has there been any validation or test with Open Manage version 6.5 and VM Ware 5? If there has been testing are there any white papers or results?

RE: Open Manage and VM Ware 5

Here's the full story:

While this is an unsupported scenario, VMware ESXi 5.0 will work with Dell OpenManage with some caveats. Full support will come in the next version of OpenManage.

In the meantime we wrote a whitepaper about using OpenManage 6.5 with ESX 5.0

Hope this helps.

Updating this post to reflect the current state of support of ESXi 5 with OpenManage.

As of December 2011, there was a release to OpenManage Server Administrator that allows for the full support of ESXi 5.
