seeking technical recomendations, suggestions, guidance for vmx
Kindly help me with following queries as we are new to this product and going to implement VMX in a production environment for the first time.
1. can it be strong prerequisite to ensure all esxi hosts that are going to be participated in vmx are updated with latest available patches ?
2. I have read this in some blog post related to vmx that not to enable "lockdown mode" for ESXi hosts because of some permission issue and was advised to "disable" it. Is it true with vmx installation/configuration. As its understood, enabling lockdown mode is security measure which forces all operations to be performed through vCenter Server. No users other than vpxuser have authentication permissions, nor can they perform operations against the host directly.
