Challenge

Veeam Management Pack 8.0 Update 6 is not compatible with VMware vSphere 7.0 (and later). When you try to connect to vCenter Servers running VMware vSphere 7.0, you get the following error: "Cannot connect to "YourVcenterName" on port 443. Unsupported API version."

Cause

The issue is related to the API changes in VMware vSphere 7.0

Solution

The Veeam Management Pack 8.0 Update 6 cumulative patch for VMware vSphere 7.0 monitoring provides the compatibility with VMware vSphere 7.0. The patch also addresses several minor issues and requests related to the monitoring of vSphere 7 and earlier versions that were reported to Veeam Technical Support.

The list of improvements includes:

  • Support for VMware vSphere 7.0 APIs.
  • A fix for the issue with relation data being collected incompletely from virtual switches in environments running VMware vSphere 6.x and earlier versions.
  • A fix for the issue with the datastore unknown files metric being collected incorrectly.
  • A new property for the Datastore Container object to represent the relation with the Veeam Virtualization Extensions Service server that manages the Veeam Collector processing a specific Datastore Container.
  • A fix for the data collection issue when monitoring standalone VMware ESXi 7.0 hosts

To install the cumulative patch, perform the following steps:
