Hi, all! I just started a new job and they have a somewhat awful VMware environment that I’d like to get under control. Right now it’s a mish-mash of independent ESXi servers, each with their own storage (no SAN/NAS) running a mix of ESXi 5.0, 5.1, and 5.5. I’d like to start by managing all this with VCenter and I’ve got a couple questions:
1. Looking at [VMware’s product compatibility matrix](https://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/sim/interop_matrix.php) seems to indicate that VCenter 6.0 U2 would be able to manage all the ESXi hosts – does that seem right?
1. If so, will I be able to migrate a running VM from one host to another without shutting it down, or does that only work with shared storage? I’d like to map out an upgrade path for all this ancient stuff without down time for our production systems, although I can schedule that if I really need to.
