Correlating VMware products build numbers to update levels (1014508)

Symptoms

  • When attempting to determine a vCenter Server or ESXi/ESX host update level, you see the build number only.
  • You do not know which build number and update or release level corresponds with one another.

Purpose

This article provides information to determine which build number represents which update level.

Resolution

VMware vSphere and vCloud suite build numbers table

This table provides a list of all VMware vSphere and vCloud suite build numbers and release dates. The build numbers are based on full installations. Patching ESXi/ESX hosts increments the build number that shows in vCenter Server.

Note: In the table below, the column marked Build Number is the number you see in the Client. The Installer Build Number is only used to identify the installer itself and not the components it installs.
