Devices deprecated and unsupported in VMware ESXi 6.0


Article ID: 334511


Updated On:


VMware vSphere ESXi


This article describes the devices that were deprecated in VMware ESXi 6.0 and the implications for support.


VMware vSphere ESXi 6.0


Support for some devices are deprecated in ESXi 6.0. During an upgrade, these device drivers may still be installed on the ESXi 6.0 host, and may continue to function, but the device is no longer officially supported on ESXi 6.0.

If you are upgrading ESXi using the ISO or VMware Update Manager, you may see a warning indicating that you are attempting to upgrade a server with a deprecated device. Proceeding with the upgrade will carry over the deprecated drivers even though the device will not be supported.

Note: While creating an image that includes driver VIBs supporting deprecated device IDs, you do not see any warnings during the installation or auto deployment. However, during a fresh installation, you see a warning about the deprecated device. You can ignore the warning and complete the installation.

This table lists the devices that are deprecated and no longer supported in ESXi 6.0:
