Requirements and Limitations

Consider the following for CDP for VMware Cloud Director:

  • As CDP for VMware Cloud Director is based on the CDP mechanism for VMware vSphere VMs, requirements and limitations are also actual. For more information, see Requirements and Limitations for CDP.
  • Check the supported Cloud Director versions in Supported Platforms and Applications.
  • The version of target hosts must be 7.0 or later. Target hosts of version 6.5 and 6.7 are not supported.
  • The Any storage policy is not supported.
  • Most configurations require that you disable the VM discovery option in VMware Cloud Director global settings. For more information on where you can change the option, see VMware Docs.
  • Fast provisioned VMs cannot be protected with CDP.
  • The maximum number of VMs in a vApp that can be protected with CDP is 128.
  • If you add a new organization VDC to the Cloud Director server after the I/O filter is installed on the existing VDCs, you need to install the I/O filter manually on the newly added VDC. To do that, open the I/O Filter Management wizard, make sure that check boxes are selected near the organization VDCs where the I/O filter must be present and finish the wizard.
