Known Issues

The following issues are known to exist in this release of vRealize Business Advanced and Enterprise.

Designer

  • vRealize Business Enterprise 8.2.1 edition does not completely support multiple datastores per virtual machine (VM) when integrated with vRealize Business Standard 6.1. If a VM has multiple datastores in vRealize Business Standard 6.1 edition, only the first datastore is accounted or displayed.
  • The user interface is broken when you log into vRealize Business Advanced and Enterprise on SaaS using Internet Explorer 11 with compatibility mode.
  • If you are using VMware vRealize Operations Manager, there is an issue with the VM unique id being different. This prevents the integration from working as expected, which affects all the related reports and does not display any data.
  • If you are using VMware vRealize Operations Manager 6.x edition, the recommended memory for certain virtual machines in the oversized VM reports are displayed in KB, instead of MB. If the virtual machines that are oversized exist, then the oversized VM reports do not contain any virtual machines under their cluster.
