I'm about to upgrade our VMware environment to 5.0.  We run all HP DL360 G7 servers.  I know HP provides their own ESXi 5.0 installation that includes agents to monitor the server.  Am I better off to just stick with the base installs from VMware or would I benefit from an HP branded install?  Does VMware still support you if you run an HP branded install?  Or do you need to purchase support from HP at that point for VMware?
