VMware releases version 6 of ESX

vSphere Hypervisor version 6

vSphere Hypervisor version 6

You can download it here, for free as in beer.

  1. The step from 5.5 to 6.0 is not quite as simple as the previous updates (like 5.0->5.1 or 5.1->5.5). You should definitely read the few KB articles that are mentioned in the release notes for some caveats.

    And don’t forget to upgrade your vCenter to 6.0 first

    I suggest putting the host in maintenance mode and simply do a fresh installation with 6.0
