VMware vSphere ESXi 6.0U3a-6.7U2

Details
The NetApp HCI Deployment Engine currently supports a single hypervisor (VMware vSphere), whereas other platforms support multiple hypervisors.

NetApp HCI v1.6 supports VMware vSphere 6.0U3a, 6.5U2 and 6.7U1/U2. The current supported vCenter versions are 6.0U3c, 6.5U2 and 6.7U1.

VMware vSphere 6.5 and 6.7 are also supported for initial deployments as well as expansions of existing environments. VMware vSphere 6.0 is only supported during expansions of existing environments.

Microsoft Hyper-V or Red Hat KVM hypervisors can be manually installed on the NetApp HCI compute nodes. However, support for such a particular combination can only be obtained via the NetApp Feature Product Variance Request (FPVR) process.
