Add VMWare ESXi 6.5 support for Clearcase

IBM System Requirements for Clearcase states that only VMWare ESXi 5.x supports Clearcase which is a very old version. Ideally the application should be supported on latest VMWare ESXi hypervisors.

The latest version as of now is ESXi 6.5. Please add support to that or update the document as required if it is already supported.

We noticed that Installation Manager 1.8.8 which we used to install Clearcase is supported on ESXi 6.5. we are not sure why Clearcase is not adding support for ESXi 6.5
