VMware vSphere prerequisites

vSphere 6.0, 6.5, or 6.7.0a, including vCenter and ESXi with software iSCSI adapter and iSCSI networking configured, is required to use the NetApp Element Plug-in for vCenter Server.

Because datastores are created using the highest VMFS version supported by the selected ESXi host, all cluster members should run the same version of vSphere and ESXi to avoid VMFS compatibility issues.

Attention: The vSphere HTML5 web client and Flash web client have separate databases that cannot be combined. Clusters added in one client will not be visible in the other. If you intend to use both clients, add your clusters in both.
