These release notes provide additional guidance for SolarWinds Virtualization Manager v6.0.1.

You can no longer upgrade on Windows. All versions prior to v5.1 and all Windows versions of Virtualization Manager have entered the End-Of-Life (EOL) cycle. View the SolarWinds EOL Policy online.

SolarWinds provides a migration tool to help transition from both older virtual appliances and Windows installations to Virtualization Manager v6.0.1

As of SolarWinds Virtualization Manager v5.0, the licensing restrictions have changed. If you have exceeded your license count or trial period, you will not be able to enable schedules or upgrade. However, you will be able to edit and save data sources.

If in upgrading your virtual appliance with this release you encounter a problem with the Orion Web Console loading the Virtualization integration resources, then consult this KB article.

Open Issues

Issue Case Number
Valid LDAP user cannot login to STM through VMan. See this KB article for the workaround. -
Entering login credentials for VMWare and Hyper-V slightly differ and cause confusion. See this KB article for details. -
Node details for Hyper-V VM always shows zero latency in Storage sub-view.


Annotations field is empty.


Cluster IOPs are inaccurate.



Administration site inaccessbile with IE10.


Timestamps are saved in local time and will not respect time zone changes made to the appliance.


After a trend report is run, the results are only available in Report Results.


If a federated collector is polling a vCenter server behind a firewall, then Virtualization Manager cannot validate the data source.


Scheduled Reports may not respect the time selected when the job is saved.


Read and write latency and IOPs data sometimes cannot be seen.


The consumption chart widget reports incorrect value for Days Remaining after a threshold is reached.


An edge case exists in the Capacity Planner where a negative capacity remaining value can incorrectly indicate that more VMs can be accommodated.


SolarWinds End of Life Policy

SolarWinds Virtualization Manager versions 5.0 and below are no longer supported. Customers on those older versions should transition to version 5.1 or above.
