vCloud – How to Deploy Windows Server 2019

Note: This article applies to vCloud 8.20. Windows Server 2019 is natively supported in vCloud 9.5 and later. Green Cloud currently runs both versions of vCloud. For more information on accessing different versions of vCloud Director, see Accessing vCloud Director. 

Issue Description

vCloud Director version 8.20 does not officially support Windows Server 2019. However, there are workarounds to deploy Windows Server 2019 in Green Cloud locations with vSphere version 6.5 or later. As of January 2020, this includes all Green Cloud IaaS sites.


When selecting the Operating System during VM deployment or management, select Windows Server 2016 instead of Windows Server 2019.
