vmware esxi 5.5.0 1331820


Im planning on upgrading the RAM in our 3x Hosts, running v5.5.0 1331820, from the 8x8gb (64gb) to (92gb).
The servers are HP proliant dl380 g7s, we think we have the correct RAM part numbers.

Running essentials kit.

We are also using the vsphere appliance version 5.5.0 Build 1750785.

Can we upgrade the servers and is there any issues with the build/version of vmware?

VMware Essentials supports up to 192Gb of RAM so you should be fine there.  Just have to make sure you have the correct RAM in the server mainly.  Some servers are finicky when it comes to pairing and matching.

I have honestly not had any trouble with any of the builds 5.5.0 and I recently upgraded a client from 5.1 to 5.5.0 build 2068190 with no issues

DL380 G7 isn't finicky about RAM, as long as you have the same amount of RAM on each CPU and don't mix types (e.g. UDIMM, RDIMM, LRDIMM) and don't exceed 8 ranks per channel. 16GB dual rank are probably most price efficient.

Provided that the RAM upgrade is supported by HP, it will be recognised by ESXi without any issues.

No need to upgrade your ESXi host, if you increase memory on ESXi host. However, it it good to have updated version of ESXi hosts.
