VMware vSphere ESXi 7.x on Dell EMC PowerEdge Systems Image Customization Information



Each ESXi image file is a customization of the base VMware image file of a particular version. Dell EMC customization of the image includes:

  • Modifying files to identify Dell EMC and Dell EMC support.
  • Updating the ESXi image file with the latest validated asynchronous drivers.
  • Updating patches if it addresses a common issue for Dell EMC PowerEdge servers.

It is recommended to use the latest version of the Dell EMC-customized ESXi image of your Dell EMC system.

NOTE:The customization guide captures the list of async drivers and additional components that are integrated with a Dell Custom image version. All VMware Inbox drivers are supported by Dell unless it is mentioned specifically.
NOTE:The Dell EMC-customized ESXi ISO image file does not include Dell EMC OpenManage Server Administrator (OMSA). For information about installing and using Dell EMC OpenManage Server Administrator, see the Dell EMC OpenManage documentation at OpenManage Manuals.

For more information about Dell EMC VMware documents, see Virtualization solutions.
