What I've heard (informally) is sometime before end of 2Q09.

Having asked this question of people at multiple large companies I haven't heard any firm commitments though....

I heard by March 2010 - possibly sooner

I am personally hoping for an earlier date, i.e. still in 2009. This all hinges (apparently) on SRM 2.0 release, which is important for many folks for a number of reasons (vSphere 4 support being probably the key one).

You may fish for some hints & updates on VMware communities (e.g. http://communities.vmware.com/message/1309615#1309615)

Hi,

The focus for SRM is on vSphere (esx v4). When the development of this version is complete, they will work again on SRM for esx 3.x (which is a seperated version).

SRM for vSphere is expected this year. SRM for esx v3.x will come later

Greetings,
