SR630 VMware ESXi 7.x image

2020-04-17, 10:23 AM

Hi everyone,

 

We have two SR630 servers that are not yet in production and are running VMware ESXi 6.7U3 using the custom image.

 

This page https://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/solutions/ht510214 

 

is titled ...

 

Installation Instructions for VMware ESXi 7.x on Lenovo ThinkSystem servers 

 

and has a link to  

 

https://vmware.lenovo.com/content/custom_iso/ 

 

to download the custom iso, but there is no 7.x iso to download.

 

Although I have used IBM servers for years, I am new to Lenovo - is there a different location for this download or is it likely that it is not ready yet?

Hi SAFA IT

 

OS Support Center - VMware : Please refer this link for more VMware resources.

 

The link is correct, the latest ESXi custom image is 6.7. I will check with development team to see why they did not provide the latest custom image. Thanks for your question.

 

Please feel free to leave your comment, thank you for support Lenovo

Wow .. End of August is really a long time, especially when considering how long ESXiV7 is out now!

@Ryan, any idea if the same Vmware v7.0 custom image is being tested/will release for the Lenovo x3650 M5 8871 Intel CPU V4 server end of this month?

Than,s,

Hi Ryan,

 

Could you give an update on when exactly the image will be available?

 

I mean 7.0 came out in April.

 

Best Regards

Bran
