What is new (April, 2022)

Lenovo introduces a new version of the VX Deployer, version 1.2.0.

Software enhancements

The following updates have been made for Release 1.2.0:
  • Support for the use of a configuration file, which can be saved from one vSAN cluster deployment and used for another vSAN cluster deployment.

    Passwords are not stored in configuration files.

    For more information about using a configuration file, see:

    Working with configuration files

  • Navigational enhancements to enable users to jump multiple pages backwards (instead of having to click the Back button multiple times).

    For this release, this feature is considered to be a technical preview. It is provided “as is.” For more information about issues related to this function, see:

      • ESXi management network

      • ESXi vSAN network

      • ESXi vMotion network

    • Each network must be on a different subnet.
