Have you ever needed an easy to reference way to see what the configuration maximums are for different versions of VMware ESX. I know I seem to need this all the time. I find it a huge pain to keep referring to each of the individual VMware documents to get the answers. Sometimes I also want to see what the changes are between versions and I can’t seem to memorize this information in my tiny little brain. So I went ahead and created a “Configuration Maximums Comparison Matrix” based on the VMware Configuration Maximums for each version.
You’ll notice some settings don’t have values for each version. This is because they were not published in the VMware documents. As I go through some additional documents and extract these values I will update the document to reflect. For no the document does include everything from the VMware Configuration maximums published for each of these Versions:
VMware ESX 3
VMware ESX 3.5 & ESX 3.5 Update 1
VMware ESX 3.5 Update 2, Update3, & Update 4
VMware vSphere 4.0 (ESX 4)
