  • NEW You cannot assign the default storage policy to a VM hard disk

    You want to add a virtual machine hard disk to an already created VM. In the vCloud Director Tenant Portal, when you navigate to Virtual Machines > select the card of the VM > Details > Hardware, the drop-down menu under Policy in the Hard Disks section does not display the Use Default VM option, and you cannot assign the default storage policy to the virtual machine hard disk.

  •  The federation metadata spring_saml_metadata.xml generates with a deprecated certificate SHA-1

    The federation metadata spring_saml_metadata.xml generates with the deprecated Secure Hash Algorithm 1 (SHA-1) instead of SHA-256.

  • Unable to attach another external network to an edge, when the same edge is used as an egress point.

    If an edge is used as an egress point to deploy a data center group and stretch network, you cannot attach another external network to the same edge. You get an error message: com.vmware.vcloud.common.network.VsmException: Vnic indexes should be unique. Multiple Vnics have same index 0., error code 10149 at com.vmware.vcloud.fabric.nsm.error.NetworkSecurityErrorHandler.processException(NetworkSecurityErrorHandler.java:95)

  • In a multi-cell environment with a Provider VDC, shared networks appear as duplicate networks

  • If you use the vCloud Director HTML5 user interface, you cannot configure message digest for IPSec VPN tunnels in your NSX Data Center for vSphere 6.4.X environment

    If you use the vCloud Director HTML5 UI, you cannot configure message digest for IPSec VPN tunnels in your NSX Data Center for vSphere 6.4.X environment. If you enable SHA-256 hashing in NSX, vCloud Director overwrites it with the default SHA-1 hash.

  • Merging two provider VDCs fails with a VXLAN network pool error

    When you merge two provider VDCs, the transport zones merge successfully in NSX, but in the VXLAN network pool fails with the following error message: Error Merging VXLAN network pools.

    The issue is resolved in NSX 6.3.x.

    If you configured vCloud Director with NSX 6.4.x, you must use the repair VXLAN network pool option to resolve the issue.

  • Adding an affinity rule for a VM with multiple disks fails if the virtual machine disks don't use the same storage policy
