Change VM supported hardware version to 13 in PVDC

I am running vCD 9.5 and have two ESXi clusters of 6.0 and 6.5. I have merged PVDC so that I can migrate VMs between the ESXi clusters. I am having problems in migrating a HW13 VM (created in vcenter since its a customized template) to vCD stating HW13 not supported at Org level. When checked, found my PVDC level configured to HW11. Upgrading to HW13 at PVDC gave me error mentioning I am running ESXi hosts of 6.0. It seems during PVDC merger, I merged PVDC 6.5 to PVDC 6.0 making PVDC6.0 primary so that it is not allowing HW13 due to compatibility issue. Is it possible to make PVDC6.5 primary so that HW13 can be migrated/supportd on PVDC..Thanks

As long as there are ESXi host at 6.0 the HWV level allowed will still remain at 13 at most.

One fix here is to upgrade those hosts to have ESXi 6.5, then change the HWV level of all PVDCs to be vmx-13.
