    Does anyone know if its the hosts or the VCENTER upgrade that this needs to be done after?  We are trying to plan the upgrade.  And is it backwards compatible?  If we have some hosts with 6.0 and some 6.5 till we complete the upgrade?  Thanks!

    You don't need to upgrade to PVSCSI, but it can be easily upgraded. Just make sure that you don't rush and switch all the LSI's over to PVSCSI at once because the VSA will bluescreen during power on as it won't have the PVSCSI drivers loaded.  By adding (changing a non OS disk) one to PVSCSI will load the drivers, and then you can change all to use PVSCSI.

    If you're running 6.5 you'll need to switch over.
