Thanks for using the ESXi Compatibility Checker Tool. This tool will no longer be updated or supported. Please use the new fling "Solution Designer" to validate the ESXi Compatibility.
Does this work for vSphere 7.0 or 7.0 U1?
currently running 6.5 U2
Yes, it should work. let me know if not.
Thanks Heejeong, confirmed it does work with ESXi 7.0 and 7.0 U1, ran the below for each
python compchecker.py -s "vcenter" -u "username" -r -v 7.0
python compchecker.py -s "vcenter" -u "username" -r -v 7.0.u1
superb tool. It picked up my HPe G8's that are not compatible with 7.0
Been running it over two years and its perfect !!!
Best tool for helping you upgrade and checking HCL..
Currently script works perfectly for compchecker.py --> 6.7u1
But when i change it to check for 6.7u3 i get an error
> Connecting host vcenter6
> collecting host information...
Please wait, this may take few minutes depending on the number of ESXi hosts...
[WARNING] The compatible status may not be fully accurate, please validate it with the official VMware Compatibility Guide
Invalid ESX release version found 6.7u3
I just tried and I am able to search certified servers by ESXi 6.7u3.
Could you please try again after cleaning up your local cache with the '-c' option?
many thanks for this awesome fling, saves me a lot of time.
One minor remark to the instructions: when I run the fling by 'compchecker.py', nothing happens. Needed to invoke it 'python compchecker.py' to get it working.
Just to confirm i still cannot see 7.0 after clearing cache data sorry for the messages.
The message is showing upgradable ESXi versions of the ESXi 6.5.0. And it is correct that you didn't see ESXi 7.0 on the list.
Please check the ESXi 6.5.0 upgrade path: https://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/sim/interop_matrix.php#upgrade&solution=1
The ESXi 6.5.0 is not upgradable to 7.0 directly, please refer to the more information from KB article https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/76555
