In a previous post, I’ve already talk about an issue occuring in a lab environment with vCSA 6.5u0 and PSC appliance : VCSA or PSC appliance won’t boot after hard shutdown.
When you install a VMware vCloud Director instance, it comes with an embedded JRE (Java Runtime Environment). For example, vCloud Director includes JRE 1.8.0_121 :
VMware introduced in version 5.5 of vCloud Director, a feature to externaly expose catalogs and if necessary, to subscribe to an externaly exposed one.
I started using the VMware Photon based appliances to deploy vCenter services (VCSA) and PSC with the 6.5 version several months ago.
SII Ouest VMware team has published a PowerCli Cheatsheet with most common commands of the VMware PowerShell SDK to manage vSphere environments.
