Machines are used in testing and short bursts of training to load different setups and O/S's and Office versions etc...

Apart from VM Tools, should there be any other upgrade tasks to ensure they are tip top!

I can see there is a hardware upgrade facility to change from vmware 6/7 to 10... but is that needed?

Current images are 1 processor and 1 GB Ram and this will stay the same for the moment so no need for bigger specs etc...

Thanks in advance

You will ONLY need to upgrade the Virtual Machine Hardware version, if you want to take advantage of NEW Workstation 10 Features.

Make sure, you upgrade VMware Tools before you do this.

and optionally upgrade the Virtual Machine Hardware version if required.

BUT, make sure you take backups before Tools and Machine Hardware version upgrade, because the latter process is not reversible.
