As vCenter has evolved many programs and plugins depend on it for functionality. With the recent GA to vSphere 6.5 a discussion came up on twitter. Veeam released version 9.5 around the same time but it’s not compatible with vSphere 6.5. I tried to install Veeam into my lab but couldn’t. Instead I was met with an error warning me to wait until Veeam 9.5 Update 1.
The discussion about Compatibility reminded me of the spreadsheet I use to track plugins and configuration of all my servers. It’s important to know if you can actually upgrade safely and as things get upgraded to keep track of it. Hopefully this shell of my spreadsheet I created to share will help someone else. Please let me know if you have any recommendations to improve this sheet or if you track this a different way. I’d love to hear it.
