9.2. Changing the Data Center Compatibility Version

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization data centers have a compatibility version. The compatibility version indicates the version of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization that the data center is intended to be compatible with. All clusters in the data center must support the desired compatibility level.


To change the data center compatibility version, you must have first updated all the clusters in your data center to a level that supports your desired compatibility level.

Procedure 9.2. Changing the Data Center Compatibility Version

  1. From the Administration Portal, click the Data Centers tab.
  2. Select the data center to change from the list displayed.
  3. Click Edit.
  4. Change the Compatibility Version to the desired value.
  5. Click OK to open the Change Data Center Compatibility Version confirmation window.
  6. Click OK to confirm.
You have updated the compatibility version of the data center.


Upgrading the compatibility will also upgrade all of the storage domains belonging to the data center. If you are upgrading the compatibility version from below 3.1 to a higher version, these storage domains will become unusable with versions older than 3.1.
