Vcenter 6.0 was released the beggining of q2 this year.   Please let us know the VCAIM support plan for this version.

What's the SystemEDGE version and plugin version (VCAIM) that supports vCenter 6.0? 5.9.0 and 12.9.0?

Hello arnold.jeffrey


I did not understand the question. The support in Spectrum is via VAIM.

Hi Nagesh, do i understand correctly that even though VAIM 12.9 will support VMware 6.0, VMware 6.0 will only be supported in Spectrum 10.2 ?

Hello BarbM,


The existing VAIM 12.9 is certified with vCenter 6.0.

Hi Nagesh,

Could you please elaborate on the latest update?

Has a new VC AIM been released?

Dear Spectrum Community Users,


This idea is a delivered with CA Spectrum 10.2 release.

Hi Chris_Knowles


This is going to be via VCAIM and not direct.

Hi Nagesh_Jaiswal,


Thank you for your response.  Can you elaborate a little more how this is planned for Spectrum?  Is there something NEW planned for the Spectrum Virtual Host Manager that will communicate directly with VMware 6.0 so we no longer need VAIM and the VCAIM?  OR, is there going to be a patch or full release of VAIM which is going to update the VCAIM to provide support for VMware 6.0 in Spectrum?  Sorry for splitting hairs here, but the difference is not trivial and directly affects our planning.


Thank you,

Hello Chris_Knowles


Right. As mentioned earlier this is planned for Spectrum.

The VAIM 12.9 release notes say it supports up to VMware 5.5.  The latest version was released on 2/25/2015...  Spectrum uses the VCAIM within VAIM to collect the VMware metrics in VHM.  Spectrum has released since this post and we haven't seen anything further on this.


VMware 6.0 has been out for over a year.  We need to know when VMware 6.0 is going to be supported on VAIM (and thereby, Spectrum).

Dear Spectrum Community Members,


This idea is planned to be delivered by next release of Spectrum.
