Per the release notes:

Supported Guest Operating Systems and Virtual Hardware Versions

vCloud Director supports all guest operating systems and virtual hardware versions supported by the ESXi hosts that back each resource pool.

In my environment, backed by 6.5 hosts, it's currently version 13.

Ciao, e.

Hello emanueleroserba,

thank you for your fast answer.

The property of my VMs does not give me the option to update from HW Version 11 to a higher version.

Do I need to update the version via vCenter?

Thank you,

Daniel

You probably need to adjust  the "highest supported hardware version" in the pVDC properties (Provider vDC, General, policies).

As described in VCD interface: 'Specify the highest virtual hardware version to be supported in organization VDCs based on this provider VDC. The default value shown is the highest hardware version supported by all hosts backing this resource pool.'

Ciao, e.
