Yes, please get this out soon.

ESXi 6.7 will be one year old next week.

No. I see that a new version of NCM was posted on 4/8/19, but it's still explicitly coded for ESXi 6.5.

Re: Nimble Connection Manager Download Sources for VMware Update Manager

Mark_Wolfe, we would like to know exactly what error you are seeing and at which step.

I have an ESX 6.7 host with GA build 8169922 and it had an older version of NCM, 5.1.0-650006.  Here are steps I followed:

1. Make sure update manager has the source https://update.nimblestorage.com/esx6.5/ncm/index.xml0.PNG

 

2.  Go to update manager home, click on "download now".  Filter by Vendor Nimble Storage.  See the last line on this image, shows ESXi version 6.7.1.png

 

3. Edit/create an extension baseline for NCM, and select the last line as source.  Attach this baseline to your ESX 6.7 host, check compliance - it will show non-compliant.2.png

 

After remediation, my ESXi host has NCM version 6.0.0-650005.

Thanks!

PS: If you find this post useful, please consider giving me Kudos!

Hi mamatadesaiNim,


Thanks very much for following this up, I too have been waiting for this update to assist with a deployment. 

I've just followed your instructions but I see a slightly updated patch (v5.1.0-650006) but this one only have 6.5 support - could it be that a new version have been released but the compatibility has reverted? If so can I install the old one for now?

NCM_5.1.0-650006 listing

(sorry if the above screenshot doesn't appear, I can't get it to preview)

Edit - Sorry I missed the v6.0.0 prefix on your screenshot, so I've still got the old one showing up. I've hit Download Now button but it's not found the new version however? 

Thanks vm,

Stephen

Hi Stephen,

If you've added the URL https://update.nimblestorage.com/esx6.5/ncm/index.xml to Update Manager, click on "Download Now" and filter by Vendor Nimble, you should see what is shown in step 2 above in my post.

We would like to know what you are seeing.  Unfortunately your post does not contain a screenshot, did you attach is using the "photos" icon?

Hi mamatadesaiNim,

Thanks for your reply. I have found out what I missed; I was filtering on the download results by the baseline I set up to look for the NCM extension but I needed to edit that baseline to include the new version.

All OK now, thank you!
Stephen
