Announcing vCenter Application Discovery Manager (ADM) Final Extension of General Support


Dear Valued Customer,

In April of 2013, VMware announced the End of Availability of all VMware vCenter Application Discovery Manager (ADM) versions, effective of June 1st, 2013. Originally, VMware extended the support and maintenance window of vCenter ADM to December 31st, 2015, and later extended it further to March 8th, 2017.

VMware has decided to further extend and maintain vCenter ADM v7.1 for our select group of current active support customers. The End of General Support (EOGS) date for vCenter ADM 7.1 is now either June 30th, 2020 or your current contract end date, whichever comes first.

Once again, VMware will continue to support vCenter ADM 7.1 only until the end of your current contract. You will no longer be able to extend your support contract for vCenter ADM, nor can you purchase any additional support for vCenter ADM.

In all cases, VMware will no longer offer maintenance and support for vCenter ADM after June 30th, 2020.

For any inquiries on this communication, please contact VMware support.

Thank you,
The VMware Team
