Correlating vCenter Server and ESXi/ESX host build numbers to update levels

Posted on

Some of the common questions I get from my customers are around build to update levels.

When was VMware product X released? Or I have a build number for Product X but what is version number?

These were questions I ask when I was a customer and I’d spend time using Google to search build numbers to find out want the product was.

This one article provides information on determining which build number represents which Update level.
