VSC 7.1 with vSphere 6.7



did anybody try VSC 7.1 with vSphere 6.7 yet? I deployed the VSC appliance, it successfully registered to vCenter as shown in VSC maintenance screen and in vcenter/mob extensionManager, but its icon does not appear in vCenter nor is it displayed in the client plugins list in vCenter 6.7.

I already tried it using different browsers and rebooted the vCenter VCSA 6.7.

Re: VSC 7.1 with vSphere 6.7

VSC 7.1 is not compatible with vsphere 6.7.

We do not have the support for 6.7 release, we are working out to support the same in next release possibly 8.0




Re: VSC 7.1 with vSphere 6.7

Please keep us updated.  This is the only thing holding us back from upgrading today.

Re: VSC 7.1 with vSphere 6.7

Is there a release date? We have a new environment already set up with vSphere 6.7 and are now finding out VSC is not compatible. 


Is it worth waiting? Or do we need to downgrade to 6.5?

Re: VSC 7.1 with vSphere 6.7

We are working on the plan to release it possibly in next release.

I will pass on the message of your need.


Please let me know the reason to move to vSphere 6.7? Is there anything specific that you are looking at from 6.7?



Re: VSC 7.1 with vSphere 6.7

We are having new hardware, and had issues with 6.5, which we don't have with 6.7. But now we are blocked because of Netapp.... So the choice is between instable system because of hardware or not having VSC...


Is there a known release date for an updated version of VSC? If this is in 2-3 weeks, we can live with that. If this is in 2-3 month, we have a problem...

Re: VSC 7.1 with vSphere 6.7

Support for vCenter 6.7 is planned (but not committed) with VSC 8.0, planned (but not committed) for end of this year.

Please reach out to the NetApp account team if yop need  the support much earlier.

Re: VSC 7.1 with vSphere 6.7

Hi mpandey,


we would be happy to have VSC support for vSphere 6.7 earlier than end of the year.



Kind regards





Re: VSC 7.1 with vSphere 6.7

Hi There,

                On the surface, it does look like an unnecessary delay in supporting vCenter 6.7. However, engineering is working on the changes for vCenter 6.7 and also on shipping a completely new, pure HTML5, UI. This work leverages the new UI architecture introduced with vCenter 6.7 (and also supported with vCenter 6.5U2). These changes are not small and there is a significant effort ongoing to ensure that the customer experience is superior to the existing Flash based UI. On a parallel note, we can also see that currently only 2 vendors are supporting HTML5 with vCenter 6.7:




               Also most of the storage vendors have plans for supporting vCenter 6.7 in the latter half of 2018 as per VMware’s blog post. The new architecture is not something which has been in existence for a long time and has been introduced only recently (please refer to the link and do notice the date). There are other eco system changes which also need to be incorporated (like Java upgrade to Oracle Java 11 for example).


We would like thank all our customers for being patient with us and assure all of them that the new improved HTML5 based UI, supporting vCenter 6.7 and vCenter 6.5U2, will be well worth the wait.


Re: VSC 7.1 with vSphere 6.7

We would also appreciate 6.7 compatibility asap, if possible with HTML5 interface support as well.

I understand new versions have always some challenges but "until the end of the year..." that`s not cool at all.

It`s been 2 months since 6.7 is RTM and I doubt you don't get early access to beta versions.


Anyway, please keep working on it.


Also strange to see that VSC 7.1 + 7.1P1 disappeard from the "official" download list.
