Symptom: Attempt to connect VMware 6.7 to the CFA fails.


ESX 6.7 requires TLSv1.2 connection unless otherwise configured.

The users who already updated their infrastructure to ESX 6.7 can temporary enable TLSv1 protocol modifying ESXiVPsDisabledProtocols key using Host Mange -Advanced Settings in vSphere Web Client. ESX host reboot is required. Known impacts:

ESX 6.7 on CFA UI will show incorrect supported HW version: 4 instead 14.
An attempt to restore VM with HW 14 back to ESX 6.7 will display a warning which can be safely ignored.

Affected versions:

VMware 6.7

CFA: up to 6.15
