UCMDB Tip: Is VMware infrastructure discovery supported for ESX/ESXi 5.1 in UD 10.0x?
We had a customer query whether VMware ESX/ESXi 5.1 is supported for VMware infrastructure discovery in UD 10.01. Please note that although previously UCMDB 10.01 documention was mentioning only ver. 5.0, ESX/ESXi 5.1 is also supported by that version.
Previously we had an Enhancement Request "Inventory Discovery Activity-> Virtualization: ESX/ESXi 5.1 should be supported" opened for this issue https://support.openview.hp.com/selfsolve/document/LID/QCCR1H84334, but it was closed with the following clarification:
"This should be supported - the shallow virtualisation discovery that is part of the inventory discovery activity is a subset of the full virtualisation discovery, which supports VMware ESXi 5.1 and vCenter 5.1. This is documented in the Discovery and Integration Content Guide - Discovery Modules, Page 209. Unfortunately, 5.1 was not added to the Discovery and Content Guide - Supported Content section. So it seems to be a documentation problem."
Please note that documentation for CP12 now mentions VMware ESXi 5.1 and vCenter 5.1 as supported versions.
If you find that this or any post resolves your issue, please be sure to mark it as an accepted solution.”
