Upgrading the VMware hardware version of the SEM virtual appliance

Can the VMware hardware version be upgraded on the virtual appliance? If so, to what version? We are currently running SEM 2019.4 but looking to upgrade to 2020.2.1 soon. Current appliance is on version 8. I see in the 2020.2 release notes fixed issues section, VMware hardware version 11 is mentioned.

I'm running 2020.2.1 and next to compatibility in vCenter it says ESXi 5.0 and later VM Version 8 is that what you mean?  I know VMware is on 15 now.

Yup, that is what I mean. I am looking for confirmation that it can be upgraded to a higher level.

Is there a certain feature you are looking for in a later VM version?

Well for one, the hyper-converged infrastructure solution that we have cannot do native snapshots on a VM unless the VMware hardware version is 10 or higher I believe.

Note that 2020.2 and 2020.2.1 upgrade the VM hardware to version 11.  You can upgrade to a later version manually
