ESXi 6.5 has been released by VMware.

Release Notes Here

Install is much like any previous version. Relatively painless. First thing to note in the new UI. All HTML5 based

esx65_1

Other ‘issues’ so far:

1) When adding local SSD, the claim rule didn’t detect as SSD. THat’s fine, there’s a KB about that: But the esxcli command options now appear to be more sensitive to order. So

esxcli storage nmp satp rule add –-satp VMW_SATP_LOCAL –-device naa.600508b1001c209ef5b30 –option “enable_ssd”
Error: Unknown command or namespace storage nmp satp rule add –-satp VMW_SATP_LOCAL –-device naa.600508b1001c209ef5b30

fails, but

esxcli storage nmp satp rule add –device=naa.600508b1001c209ef5b30 –satp=VMW_SATP_LOCAL –option “enable_ssd”

works – specifying the device first.
