Fujitsu ESXi 6.5 customized image – still not supported for 8 GB UFM modules
Many of our customers would like update their Fujitsu servers to latest ESXi 6.5 image, BUT current version of image VMware-ESXi-6.5.0-4564106-Fujitsu-v400-1.iso, which was relased 11.01.2017 not support 8 GB UFM devices. So you should not perform any fresh installation or update from 5.5 /6.0 to 6.5. The workaround is install ESXi 6.5 customized iso to the SSD/HDD drives.
The new release of customized image with 8 GB UFM support is sheduled to april 2017, so in april you can order server with preinstalled ESXi 6.5 and 8 GB UFM module or you can perform fresh install / upgrade from 5.5 / 6.0 to 6.5 🙂
if you have a Fujitsu server with 2 GB or 4 GB UFM module, you can perform update to ESXi 6.5 or clean installation without problems.
