Supported Hardware Version in Provider vDC

Remember to change default value of “Highest supported hardware version” from 7 to 9 when you create a Provider vDC in VMware vCloud Director 5 or you will face some issues later on when you want to import VM’s from vCenter to your Catalogs and will get this error message:
“The selected vdc does not support required virtual hardware version”
The interesting point is that VM’s in vCenter are created compatible to Hardware Version 8 by default! In fact, there are some inconsistencies between vCenter, vSphere and vCloud Director; it is just one of them.
