Prime Infrastructure 2.1 on VMWare vSphere Hypervisor 6.5

Hello all,

Can any one confirm if Prime Infrastructure 2.1 supported on VMware vSphere Hypervisor 6.5 free version ?

We got Cisco UCSC-C220-M4S as hardware for Cisco Prime Infrastructure only. The plan is to install VMWare vSphere Hypervisor 6.5 on UCS-C220-M4S then install Prime Infrastructure 2.1.

Will it work fine ?

Regards,

Thank you Marce1000 and Marvin to reply here.

It was my bad, Prime Infrastructure version is 2.2 not 2.1. and from following link, PI 2.2 has support on EsXi 5.5 (which is available as free version from vmware.com )

Can any one confirm if PI 2.2 works fine with free version of ESXi 5.5 ?

File name for free ESXi 5.5 on vmware is

VMware-VMvisor-Installer-5.5.0.update03-3116895.x86_64.iso

Adding to M's correct reply - even the current PI 3.1 is supported only up through ESXi 6.0.

PI is one product that is rather particular about heeding the requirements. If you depart from them, you may get some very hard to fix problems.
