1.5

Description (partial)

Symptom:
In CWMS 1.5 Release Notes, we state the following: "You must purchase VMware vSphere 5.0, 5.0 Update 1, 5.1, or 5.5 for use as the hypervisor platform for Cisco WebEx Meetings Server by completing one of the following:"
http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/collaboration/CWMS/1_5/Release_Notes.html#reference_FAFBC203E8414B31B4D2A2CA5978455E 
http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/collaboration/CWMS/2_0/Release_Notes/Release_Notes.html#reference_FAFBC203E8414B31B4D2A2CA5978455E

As we can see 5.5 version of Hypervisor is listed as supported here. However, in System requirements document, we see that 5.1 is the highest supported version of Hypervisor in CWMS 1.5: http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/collaboration/CWMS/1_5/System_Requirements/System_Requirements_chapter_00.html#reference_BA7FE746303149E69A845B5D09C44D9A 

Hypervisor

 vSphere versions 5.0, 5.0 Update 1, or 5.1.
 vSphere licenses:
 5.0 or 5.0 Update 1: vSphere Enterprise Plus license for 800 and 2000 user systems. vSphere Standard license for 50 and 250 user systems.
 5.1: vSphere Enterprise license for 800 and 2000 user systems. vSphere Standard license for 50 and 250 user systems.
 One VMware license per processor socket.
 vCenter Server 5.0, 5.0 Update 1, or 5.1.


In 2.0 documentation, we list 5.5 as supported, but that is clearly wrong: 
http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/collaboration/CWMS/2_0/Planning_Guide/Planning_Guide_chapter_01011.html#reference_EE2655849348437FB3A34F4C4D3E1F71

It is wrong because in CWMS 2.5 Release Notes, we list vCenter 5.5 support as a brand new feature:
http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/collaboration/CWMS/2_5/Release_Notes.html#concept_E1EF00245B2D4BC580CC8759C299D93E

"VMWare VSphere 5.5 is now supported."


- We need to ensure consistency in documentation and need to confirm if 5.5 version of Hypervisor is or is not supported with CWMS 1.5 and 2.0

Conditions:
CWMS 1.5/2.0
Hypervisor 5.5
