Are any of the vmware hardening guide security recommendations generally accepted as "essential", and priority. Our infrastructure team were looking align to the security of the hosts, vcenter and vnetwork in line with the vmware hardening guide, however by looking at the potential impact column of the spreadsheet - many of the settings seem to introduce many issues for operations/support- without seemingly improving the security massively either.
So I wondered if there were some higher priority secureity settings - and if so specific to vsphere and vnetwork which exactly which those are? I assume some are more important than others?
