VMware Announces End of Availability Date for VMware vSphere® ESX hypervisor 4.x and VMware Management Assistant Versions 1 and 4
posted on December 10, 2012 15:39
On November 28, 2012, VMware is notifying customers of an End of Availability (“EoA”) date for VMware vSphere® ESX hypervisor 4.x and for VMware Management Assistant (“vMA”) versions 1 and 4. The end of availability date is August 15, 2013. This is a follow-on communication to the general announcement made in July 2011 in connection with the launch of vSphere 5.0.
This notification has NO IMPACT on existing vSphere ESXi 4.x environments, and your customers are NOT required to take any action. However, it is recommended that customers make a backup or keep an archived copy of these binaries and generate any necessary license keys in order to maintain or expand a vSphere ESX hypervisor version 4.x or vMA versions 1 and 4 environment. These steps should be completed prior to August 15, 2013. VMware will not provide any binaries or license keys for vSphere ESX hypervisor 4.x or vMA versions 1 and 4 after August 15, 2013.

The end of support life (“EOSL”) date remains May 21, 2014. Learn more about VMware’s support lifecycle.
Customer’s ability to use the binaries of vSphere ESX hypervisor 4.x or vMA versions 1 and 4 past August 15, 2013
