Just a short post about an issue with combination of vCloud Director 5.6 and NSX.
In case you are upgrading vCNS to NSX and are using vCloud Director 5.6 you are still affected by the Edge Redeploy bug described in the following two KBs:
- vCloud Director 5.x and VMware NSX for vSphere 6.x interoperability guidelines
- Interoperability considerations for vCloud Director 5.5 with VMware vSphere 6.0, VMware NSX for vSphere 6.1, and vSAN 6.0
The legacy vCNS Edges (version 5.5) are during vCloud Director redeploy operations incorrectly upgraded to NSX Edges (version 6). This breaks compatibility with vCloud Director.
The fix involves adding following entry into vCloud Director database:
INSERT INTO config (config_id, cat, name, value, sortorder) VALUES (seq_config.NextVal, 'vcloud', 'networking.edge_version_for_vsm6.1', '5.5', 0);
Microsoft SQL Server:
INSERT INTO config (cat, name, value, sortorder) VALUES ('vcloud', 'networking.edge_version_for_vsm6.1', '5.5', 0);
For NSX 6.1 use …vsm6.1, For NSX 6.0 or 6.2 use …vsm6.0 or …vsm6.2 in the string above.
The bug is fixed in builds of vCloud Director 5.5.3 and later and 8.0 and later.
