So I’m pretty newish to VMware (only sysadmin for 2 years doing everything myself – “Jack of all trades”)
I have a cluster of DELL R430 because the old sysadmin unfortunately bought them like 6 months before R440 came out. And now it seems they are not on 7.0 HCL :/ Strange enough it seems 530 + 630 + 730 is all fine, but 430 got “cancelled” this time.
Problem is ESXi 6.7 won’t be supported for very long – 2021/11/15.
I also generally don’t like being very far behind. Currently running 6.7U3.
What are my options here?
Should I wait a year and then beg CEO for permissions to buy then (hopefully) R450’s or should I be running 6.7 U3 until late 2021 and how bad would that be?
I don’t think running outside HCL is good in production so that is probably a no go.
Why is 6.7 only supported the same as 6.5?
Would love to hear your ideas. Nothing major issue yet, but I like to get an idea of my options.
