Cannot use vSphere Client to edit the settings of virtual machine of version 10 or higher


After upgrading to VMware 5.5.0 and you are also considering upgrade the Virtual machine compatibility from v9 to v10 I do recommend performing a snapshot or backup of the VM before hand:

You are no longer able to edit your Virtual machines through the vSphere client in v10!

If you still have users/employees connecting through the regular vSphere client, you might want to consider this or have them access the web client going forward.

Here are the hardware version features to consider:
