    Chargeback 2.7.1 and vCenter 6 / NSX compatibility

    JEHolo3 Novice

      I’m looking at the products we use in our vCloud Director environment and their upgrade paths.

       

      I have found what looks like a really good document :

       

      https://www.vmware.com/files/pdf/vcloud-air/vmw-vcloud-networking-and-security-to-vmware-nsx-upgrade.pdf

       

      But I have found a couple of uncertain points in this document :

       

      Chargeback and NSX compatibility:

      Document states that NSX supports the vShield APIs and that ChargeBack uses the vShield APIs to get network usage (page 7).

      But getting an independent confirmation that Chargeback 2.7.1 will work with NSX and which versions of NSX is hard to find.

      Document above indicates that NSX 6.2.2 should work with CB 2.7.1 (page 19)

       

      Will CB 2.7.1  work with NSX 6.2.2 and are there any issues / limitations ?

       

       

      ChargeBack and vCenter 6 :

      The document above indicates that ChargeBack 2.7.1 should work with vCenter (and ESX) version 6.0U2 (page 19)

      But the Chargeback 2.7.1 release notes does not list any versions of vCenter 6. The supported list of vCenters are the following :

      Supported VMware vCenter Server Versions

      • vCenter Server 5.1 Update 2
      • vCenter Server 5.5 Update 1
      • vCenter Server 5.5 Update 2
      • vCenter Server 5.5 Update 3

      Ref :

      http://pubs.vmware.com/Release_Notes/en/ChargebackMgmt/271/vcbm_2_7_1_release_notes.html?__utma=207178772.1073597074.1455281734.1464090101.1464092128.10&__utmb=207178772.1.10.1464092128&__utmc=207178772&__utmx=-&__utmz=207178772.1464092128.10.10.utmcsr=vmware.com|utmccn=(referral)|utmcmd=referral|utmcct=/products/vcenter-chargeback/vcenter-chargeback-manager-service-providers&__utmv=-&__utmk=174632993

       

      The following ChargeBack 2.7.1 compatibility matrix document does not list vCenter 6 either :

      Will CB 2.7.1 will work with vCenter 6 (and ESX 6) and are there any issues / limitations ?
