I’m happy to announce the availability of the vSphere 5.5 Hardening Guide Release Candidate. A SIGNIFICANT amount of documentation updates have been incorporated into the guide to really round it out. There have been some new additions and some deletions to the guide. All changes are documented in the changelog spreadsheet.
You can download the guide and the changelog here. All changes are color-coded in the changelog and within the RC release spreadsheet. The colors will be removed from the final GA document but will remain in the changelog.
I would encourage you to review the document and provide feedback ASAP. The goal is to release this for General Availability in the next week unless significant changes come in. You can reply to the discussion with your updates or contact me directly at mfoley @ vmware.com.
When the guide is released for GA, it will up uploaded to the normal location
Thanks for reading,
