This is not a quiet a post! but I thought to write this post to show that the importance of the VMware Product Interoperability Matrices before you start any deployment. One of my friend was deploying the VMware Intergrated OpenStack in his environment and selected to use the vSphere 6.5 as the vCenter server which is the latest version of the vCenter Server. There was no issues with the vCenter server deployment and successfully deployed the vCenter server and started the VIO 3.x deployment.
He was facing this issue at the step of selecting the management cluster in the deployment and was trying to find s solution.
He asked the possibility of getting this type of error and I checked the VMware Product Interoperability Matrices against the vCenter server 6.5 and the VMware Integrated OpenStack and found this
Also, I searched whether there is any KB article from VMware related to this error. I found this article and shared the details. This article says “At this time the VMware vCenter Server 6.5 for use with a VIO 3.x Deployments is not Supported. Please also note that VMware vSphere Server 6.5 is not supported for use with any of the VMware Openstack Versions.” At the time of writing this article VMware Integrated OpenStack 3.1.0 was not released and it is supporting to the vCenter server 6.5.
Article Updated on:
VIO 3.1.0 released on :
So, this is a good example of the impact of proceeding without checking all your dependencies such as VMware other solutions, Databases and upgrade paths before we proceed with the deployment.
This is a really cool and easy tool to use, Always use this before you proceed.
