    Is the ESXi firewall causing you some kind of problem?

        Just to clarify, the vSphere firewall protects the vSphere host, NOT the guests.

            I don't understand the question.

            There is no ESX, there's only vSphere. vSphere 5.1 is the latest version as far as I know. If you're running vSphere 5 then you're only one update behind. You can update directly using VUM (VMware Update Manager) if you're licensed for and running vCenter Server. If not, you can perform an interactive update with a vSphere 5.1 CD/DVD.

                Going from vSphere 5.1 to vSphere 4.1 is a downgrade, not an update.

                If the VM version for the virtual machines is version 7 then you can migrate them directly to a vSphere 4.1 host. If the VM version is version 8 then you cannot migrate them directly to a vSphere 4.1 host.

                  thank you for your answer,
                  so ESX 4.1 is old version ? and ESXI 5.1 is most recent?
                  i thought 4.1 is most recent of server version,
