I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Yes, it is supported see the

VMware Product Interoperability Matrixes

As long as the version is the same you are okay, e.g. 5.1!

So 5.1 GA can manage 5.1 U3.

But as a matter of good practice, we always ensure, that vCenter Server, is a higher build than our hosts, if possible.
