Hello there,

We haev XenDesktop 5.6 5.6.5.12 -(Controller verison farm using MCS running on VMware hypervisor 5.1. The VMware is going to be upgraded to 5.5.
According to Citrix hypervisor support matrix,vShpere 5.5 is supported for XenDesktop 5.6 FP1 (Supported with Known Issues. Refer CTX140135).
So I am planning to update Hotfix to the latest version.

Is there any pre-caution to be taken and what is the recommend path for Hotfix upgrade?

Please advise.

Thanks and Regards

Can you please advise (attached is the screenshot) as to how to find out the current Hotfix?

Also Citrix says if XD 5.6 Feature Pack 1, it is compatible with vSphere 5.5

Please advise.
