          VDP is dead and so you'll have better luck with something in modern support.

            Data Domain OS 6.1.2.20-606786

             

            I don't think this is supported. Check with VMware support for confirmation. They have a doc for the compatibility matrix internally for this.

              Hi all

              I managed to add DD virtual edition, DDOS 6.0.2.20-587212

              Perhaps need to do a downgrade of physical DD ((

                Not a wise option to downgrade DDoS to be compatible with VDP which is end of life.

                 

                Best path is to move to a different solution which provides good integration with DD.
