deprecated VMFS Volume found on the Host.Please consider upgrading Volumes to the latest version ESXi 6

As per the VMware Vsphere alarm clearly state that some of your VMFS Filesystem is older version in ESXi 6 VMFS version is 5 … May be your using VMFS3 or some other version means you will get above alarm… But my Filesystem is completely latest one as VMFS5 as below
