VMware vSphere 5.1 now supports VMware View 5.1.x.

At the release of vSphere 5.1 VMware’s own Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) solution View was not supported on vSphere 5.1.

This has now been fixed.

Current installations of vSphere 5.1 need an express hotfix so View 5.1.x can run on it. More details and download of the hotfix at the VMware website.

For new vSphere 5.1 installations an updated ISO build is available which has View 5.1.x support built in.
To download the ISO:

  1. Navigate to the vSphere Download Center.
  2. Click View Download for the VMware ESXi 5.1.0 Installable for your version of ESXi.
  3. On the Product Downloads tab, download VMware-VMvisor-Installer-201210001-838463.x86_64.iso.

The original vSphere 5.1 built released on September 10 has filename VMware-VMvisor-Installer-5.1.0-799733.x86_64.iso

The vSphere 5.1 build with View support has been released at October 25 has filename VMware-VMvisor-Installer-201210001-838463.x86_64.iso
