VSICM55 - Slide 13-20 - vCenter Database Requirements



Wrong:

The slide graphic is a mess of wrong database versions being listed: the majority of what is shown there is outdated and refers to previous vCenter Server versions. Additionally, the second paragraph of the slide notes contains an incomplete statement about the version of the embedded database supported by vCenter Server running on Windows systems.

Correct:

According to the VMware Product Interoperability Matrix for the Solution/Database Interoperability, the following is the list of the currently supported database versions:


Microsoft SQL Server 2005
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Standard/Enterprise Edition (SP4) - 32-bit/64-bit

Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Express (for the embedded DB)
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Express (R2 SP1) - 64-bit
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Express (R2 SP2) - 32-bit/64-bit

Microsoft SQL Server 2008
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Standard/Enterprise/Datacenter (R2 SP1) - 32-bit/64-bit
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Standard/Enterprise/Data Center (R2 SP2) - 32-bit/64-bit

Microsoft SQL Server 2012
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Standard/Enterprise - 32-bit/64-bit
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Standard/Enterprise (SP1) - 32-bit/64 bit

Oracle 11g
  • Oracle 11g Standard ONE/Standard/Enterprise Edition, Release 2 - 32-bit/64-bit
  • Oracle 11g Enterprise Edition, Release 2 [11.2.0.3] - 32-bit/64-bit

VSICM51 - Slide 14-40 - Managing vCenter Server Appliance Services



Wrong:

The second paragraph in slide notes state:

The embedded database is a DB2 Express database.
Correct:

The IBM DB2 Express database - originally deployed in vSphere 5.0 - has been soon replaced by PostgreSQL.

Versions 5.0.1 and 5.1 of the vCenter Server Appliance use PostgreSQL for the embedded database instead of IBM DB2, which was used in vCenter Server Appliance 5.0.
