Resolved issues

The following issues have been resolved in this release.

  • Error when attempting to Sync with cloud policies with an organization that has a comma in the name

    Attempting clicking Sync with cloud when a tenant organization is named with a comma, results in an error message.

    For example, the error message for an organization named 'abc,def' is: Unexpected vCloud Director error. Bad request: Expression 'def' is not a comparison expression.

  • L2 Stretch does not list any organization edges when an edge uses IP space

    VMware Cloud Director 10.4.1 introduces IP spaces. In VMware Cloud Director Availability, on the L2 Stretch page no organization edges show when any of the them uses IP space, including the ones that do not use IP space. 

Known issues

The following known issues are currently identified in this release.

  • In Cloud Director sites with dual Tunnel appliances, the administrative sessions access cannot be restricted

    When using two Tunnel Appliance instances in an active-active mode, if Security settings > Restrict Admin APIs by source IP is set to Allow admin access from anywhere, the restriction would not apply.

    Workaround: Upgrade to VMware Cloud Director Availability 4.6.1.

  • RPO interval filtering in VM perspective status tab ignores the max value with no min value entered

    By not entering a minimum value, the RPO interval filtering in the VM perspective status tab does not respect the maximum value.
