  • Appliance upgrade script does not support FQDN addresses for the old appliance #1731
    When you run the script to upgrade the vSphere Integrated Containers appliance, the script prompts you for the FQDN or IP address of the old version of the appliance. However, the script only supports IP addresses for the appliance, and does not support FQDN addresses. You can use FQDN for vCenter Server addresses.

  • Appliance services are not available if accessed through NAT or a reverse proxy. #1172
    The Getting Started page of the appliance includes links to the services running on the appliance. These links are constructed assuming that users connect to the appliance by using its IP or FQDN, and that it is not hidden behind NAT or a reverse proxy.

    Workaround: Add the FDQN by which the appliance identifies itself to the /etc/hosts file of the client machine, pointing to the translated IP address that the client sees.

  • vSphere Client shows warnings when you attempt legitimate operations on the appliance VM. #1184
    If you attempt to perform operations on the appliance VM, for example migrate it, move it to a new folder, or restart it, you see a warning that the the VM is managed by Solution vSphere Integrated Containers-H5Client.

    Workaround: Ignore the warnings and click Yes to proceed with the operation.

Installation and Upgrade

IMPORTANT: If you use vSphere 6.7 update 1 or later, you must use vSphere Integrated Containers 1.4.3 or 1.4.4.
