Question about Vsphere 5.1 and 4.1

hi guys,

We've got a central environment which is running on Vsphere 4.1 and manages all of the hosts that are in separate sites. However, going forward we might virtualise further sites. But seeing as the newer versions are 5.1, we'd probably have to buy these.

Can I use the latest version of Vsphere on this remote site and put two Vm's on it and then have this remote site managed by our current Vcenter which is on 4.1?

Thanks
Yashy

Unfortunately not.

ESXi 5.1 *MUST* be managed by vCenter Server 5.1. vCenter Server 5.1 can manage 5.1, 5.0, 4.1, 4.0, 3.x.
