Is VMware ESXi with vSphere 6.0 supported?
The technical documentation for the 6.1 virtual appliances states: "VMware ESXi with vSphere 5.0, 5.1, and 5.5 for VM-Series running PAN-OS 6.1."
And the 7.0 documentation states: "VMware ESXi with vSphere 5.1 or 5.5 for VM-Series running PAN-OS 7.0."
I've not found any information regarding ESXi 6.0 in any of the community or the technical documentation sections of PA Support.
VMware just released ESXi 6 in May. It generally takes PA a few months to verify all is well and add official support for the new versions.
If you need official answers and dates, you will need to contact your Palo Alto sales engineer. Palo Alto never makes any roadmap or future release statements in any public forum.
VMware ESXi 6.0 is supported for PAN-OS-7.0.x
From the document:
The VM-Series firewall has the following requirements:
VMware ESXi with vSphere 5.1, 5.5, or 6.0 for VM-Series running PAN-OS 7.0. Note that the minimum
supported version of the virtual hardware family type (also known as the VMware virtual hardware version)
on the ESXi server is vmx-09.
