[a] As the pace of change in public cloud features is high, constantly changing and evolving, the compatibility for CloudForms is as of the time of the GA of the product. Best effort basis during errata cycle for public cloud vendor introduced breaking changes (intended or unintended) to existing functionality. Any other changes or additions would be considered as a Request For Enhancement (RFE) which is evaluated for potential inclusion in future releases. RFE can be requested via your standard support mechanisms.

Chapter 5. Feature Support

Red Hat CloudForms allows you to perform actions on the providers that it manages, and provides features for interacting with and providing information about those providers. This section outlines the status of support for actions that you can perform on providers, and the CloudForms features that allow you to interact with those providers.

Note

You can run a rake command to retrieve a list of provider features supported across all platforms. Run the following command in your CloudForms appliance to retrieve the supported features in a comma-separated values (.csv) file format, which are displayed on the command-line interface (CLI) by default, however, you can use a pipe to redirect the output to a file.

Chapter 6. Remote Console Support

Red Hat CloudForms allows you to access the console of virtual machines and instances on the providers it managers using HTML5-based VNC consoles. This section outlines the status of support for remote consoles in Red Hat CloudForms.

Note

For VMware vSphere providers, Red Hat CloudForms supports the versions of VMRC that VMware supports. However, VMware does not support VMRC for Mac operating systems. See VMware VMRC documentation for more information.

For all other providers, Red Hat CloudForms supports HTML5-based VNC consoles. The following have been tested with CloudForms Management Engine:

See Red Hat CloudForms Management Engine VNC Support.

Note

As of 1 September 2015, new versions of Chrome no longer support VMRC consoles. VMRC requires NPAPI plug-in support. Chrome removed support for NPAPI plug-ins in version 45.0.2454, which was released on this date.

Chapter 7. Operating System Support

Supported operating systems by infrastructure and cloud providers.

Operating system support is dependent on the level of support established for each provider version. Please see the provider documentation for current operating system support.

Chapter 8. Smart State Analysis Support

Red Hat CloudForms supports SmartState analysis, allowing you to analyze virtual machines and instances in your inventory. SmartState analysis collects information about the base operating system on VMs and instance, their virtual hardware, installed applications, and other details.

This section outlines the status of support for SmartState analysis for:

  • File systems
  • Providers
  • Hosts
  • Datastores
  • Container Images

8.1. File Systems

The following tables outline SmartState analysis support for different file systems by infrastructure and cloud providers.
