General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_VMI has multiple definitions:

VMI Guest support (DEPRECATED) found in arch/x86/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_VMI:

Help text

VMI provides a paravirtualized interface to the VMware ESX server (it could be used by other hypervisors in theory too, but is not at the moment), by linking the kernel to a GPL-ed ROM module provided by the hypervisor.

As of September 2009, VMware has started a phased retirement of this feature from VMware's products. Please see feature-removal-schedule.txt for details. If you are planning to enable this option, please note that you cannot live migrate a VMI enabled VM to a future VMware product, which doesn't support VMI. So if you expect your kernel to seamlessly migrate to newer VMware products, keep this disabled.
