Checking VMware Data Recovery (vDR) build versions to verify latest code.
While working on some VMware Data Recovery appliances today, I had to check the build versions to see if they were running the latest bits of code. After checking VMware’s site for the latest version (Build 207380), you can check the appliance versions in your environment at the following locations.
Each vDR appliance runs a Web server where you can log in as root / vmw@re to view the Build Version. https://<VDR IP>:5480
The Console of the vDR appliance also contains the Build Version.
The summary page in vCenter for the appliance.
An interesting place that it is NOT is in the VMware Data Recovery plug in itself.
For a new and developing product like VMware Data Recovery, I always try to make sure I am running the latest code to take advantage of the latest bug fixes and enhancements.
