When you create a new data center, you can set the compatibility version. Select the compatibility version that suits all the hosts in the data center. Once set, version regression is not allowed. For a fresh Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization installation, the latest compatibility version is set in the Default Data Center and Default Cluster; to use an older compatibility version, you must create additional data centers and clusters.
