      Feature Overview

      Ensure that OpenShift 4.13 on vSphere is limited to vSphere 7.0u2 or later for install and upgrade.


      • Ensure that OpenShift 4.13 on vSphere is limited to vSphere 7.0u2 or later because OCP 4.13 will have CSI migration enabled and vSphere 7.0.2 is minimum requirement of migration. Earlier vSphere versions are not supported in OCP 4.13.
      • Block upgrades to OpenShift 4.13 if vSphere 7.0u1 or earlier is used. vSphere 7.0.2 or later is minimum requirement for upgrade.
      • Ensure OpenShift docs are updated to reflect these restriction.

      Why is this important

      • VMware vSphere is very popular among our install base. If we fail to provide guidance, customers will run into issues during install and upgrade.
