I think you meam H C L ?

The HCL, is the Hardware Compatibility Lists, which shows servers and devices, that have been tested and known to work with different versions of VMware Products.

If your device is not on the list, it will not be supported, and may not function in the server.

Any hardware device you use for ESXi 5.5, should be on the list.

Check the VMware Hardware Compatability Lists HCL here

The VMware Hardware Compatibility List is the detailed lists showing actual vendor devices that are either physically tested or are similar to the devices tested by VMware or VMware partners. Items on the list are tested with VMware products and are known to operate correctly.Devices which are not on the list may function, but will not be supported by VMware.
