Re: vCloud Director V8 Support and Beyond

Ok, so in other words: there will be no chance to run vCD 9.1 with Veeam 9.5 and vSphere 6.0/6.5?

No, Anton meant a different thing:

According to the plan, next Veeam Backup & Replication update will bring support for vSphere 6.7. The support for vCD 9.1 will be also included in this update.

Thanks.

After some long and hard thinking I came to the same conclusion :)
Thanks for clearing up though!

It never harms to clarify the confusion, especially when it concerns critical infrastructure update. :)

If other questions arise, let us know.

Thanks.

[MERGED] vCloud Director 9.1 Support

Post by xerexb11b » Jun 18, 2018 4:19 pm

I was wondering if in the current VBR 9.5 update 3 if it supports VCD 9.1? If not supported in the current update will it be supported in the 9.5 update 4, and if that is the case does anyone have a date on the release of the update?

No, it does not. Update 3a (that should be released soon) will bring "compatibility" level support for VMware vCloud Director 9.1.
Gostev wrote:VMware vCloud Director 9.1 support is also a part of Update 3a, at what we call "compatibility" level. This basically means that if you upgrade to the new platform version, everything you're doing today is guaranteed to continue working. But there are a couple of minor issues around new features introduced in vCloud Director 9.1 (specifically, with Standalone VMs and Guest vLAN Allowed option) which may require manual tweaks after full VM restore. These issues will be documented in the release notes for Update 3a.

Hi again,

Since vCloud Director 9.5 has been released in the beginning of October, what's the status on support by Veeam? Is it already working? Planned with 9.4?

Hi Stephan, yes, vCD 9.5 testing is underway. So far we cannot make any statements regarding its support though.

[MERGED] vCloud Director 9.5 support

Post by M0nty » Oct 25, 2018 5:09 am

Hi we are looking into upgrading to vSphere 6.7u1 and need to upgrade our vCloud director to 9.5 to support this.
But as of now Veeam doesn't support vCloud 9.5, any idea when this support will be added to Veeam?

Next couple of months? That could also mean 2019 or will it still be this year?

vCloud Director 9.7 released!

Post by anpa » Apr 01, 2019 7:45 am 1 person likes this post

Hi,

vCloud Director 9.7 was released a couple of days ago, in case you hadn't noticed :)

Here's the release notes:
https://docs.vmware.com/en/vCloud-Direc ... notes.html

And here's a blog post outlining some of the features:
https://blogs.vmware.com/vcloud/2019/03 ... r-9-7.html

Looking forward to see what Veeam can build towards this :)

Hey there Andreas, yes it's a big release with a lot of goodness.

Out of interest, what are you looking towards in terms of what we can build?

As with every vCD release there is a 90 day window for it to be officially supported.

We cannot provide any information right now, but typically it takes us about three months to implement support for new platform release.

We're about to deploy vCD 9.7 soon and start testing it soon.

Thanks!

Handling of the SDDC proxy features, and how that would integrate with Veeam.
The added plugin support and enhancements, so that perhaps Veeam can customize the UI even more..

I believe it is close to being supported. Most likely it will come with our next minor patch update 4b.

At the moment, we are still in the 90 day window from when vCD 9.7 was released.

We're actively working on supporting it. Anthony is correct - current results look promising, so most likely it will be included in Update 4b. Thanks!
