Question about ANM Virtual Appliance ESX support

Hello,

I have a question:

I need to install ANM 5.2 on a virtual appliance (using the .ova file).

What ESX and vSphere versions does ANM 5.2 support?

I don't see any information regarding this on the release notes or installation guide.

Thanks.

Question about ANM Virtual Appliance ESX support

Looks like the only requirement is Vcenter and Vsphere 4 client.  So version 4.0 and up is supported.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/app_ntwk_services/data_center_app_services/application_networking_manager/5.1/device_support/table/sdt.html

ANM 5.2 and 5.1 includes a plug-in that allows you to integrate ANM into  a VMware virtual data center environment. VMware is a third-party  product for creating and managing virtual data centers. Using VMware  vSphere Client, you can access ANM functionality and manage the ACE real  servers that provide load-balancing services for the virtual machines  in your virtual data center.

To use the ANM 5.2/5.1 plug-in, you must use VMware vCenter Server and  VMware vSphere Client 4.

For more information about using ANM in a VMware virtual data center  environment, see the User Guide for the Cisco  Application Networking Manager 5.2/5.1.

Question about ANM Virtual Appliance ESX support

Hi Christopher,

Thanks for the response.

I was actuallu talking about the installation itself and not the VMWare plugin.

Anyway, I found out that the system requirements for virtual appliance are VMware vSphere 4.0, 4.1, 5.0:
