You cannot upgrade a deployment that contains vApp (vCloud) endpoints. The presence of endpoints of type vApp (vCloud) prevent upgrade to vRealize Automation 7.0.

When upgrade encounters a vApp (vCloud) endpoint in the source deployment, upgrade fails on the master virtual appliance and reports a message in the user interface and log. You can determine if your source deployment contains vApp (vCloud) endpoint by logging in to vRealize Automation with Iaas Administrator privileges, selecting Infrastructure > Endponts and noting the platform type value in the Endpoints list. If the list contains endpoints of platform type vApp (vCloud), upgrade to 7.0 is not supported.

Managed vApps for vCloud Air or vCloud Director resources are not supported in the target vRealize Automation deployment.


A known issue exists where the following deprecated approval policy types appear in the list of available approval policy types after upgrade is finished. These policy types are unusable.

  • Service Catalog - Catalog Item Request - vApp

  • Service Catalog - Catalog Item Request - vApp Component

You can create vCloud Air and vCloud Director endpoints and reservations in the target deployment. You can also create blueprints that contain vCloud Air or vCloud Director machine components.
