vCloud Director Released


Yesterday, 2018-01-16, VMware released a minor update to vCloud Director (vCD) meaning latest and greatest version is now This release focuses on resolving issues and not on new features which is usually the way with these minor minor updates.

A few resolved issues I have seen or heard about are:

  • Change SID for Windows Server 2016 operating system customization does not work.
  • API response of 403 forbidden instead of 401 unauthorized
  • Edge Gateway Services changes are not synchronized between vCloud Director & NSX
  • Deleting an external network that uses a distributed virtual port group with a Private VLAN does not work
  • Deleting a Provider VDC can corrupt VXLAN network pools that are in use.

Note from VMware website: vCloud Director 9.0 is exclusively available to Service Providers that are enrolled in the vCloud Air Network (vCAN) program
