Microsoft Virtualization Support Policy

We do work on a lot of environments which have VMWare Virtualization. The first thing that needs to be done is to find the version of the ESX in use in the environment.

VMware ESX Update

Build Number

ESX 3.5.0 Update 1

64607

ESX 3.5.0 Update 2

110268

ESX 3.5.0 Update 3

123630

ESX 3i (3.5.0) Update 3

123629

If you trying to seek Microsoft CSS support for a non-Microsoft virtualized environment, then you need to be aware of the Virtualization Support Policy:

Also if you want to find out if your virtualized environment is supported, then you can use the Support Policy Wizard.
