Morpheus v6.0.4 Documentation

v6.0.4 LTS Release Notes


Morpheus v6.0.4 only supports rolling upgrades for HA environments when upgrading from v6.0.2+.

  • Compatible Plugin API version: 0.14.3

  • Compatible Morpheus Worker version: 5.4.8


In Morpheus v6.0.4, many third party integrations have been moved out of the core installer package and converted to Morpheus plugins. As a result, during the upgrade process your appliance will need to be able to access, the online repository for all Morpheus plugins. Where this is not possible, users may instead apply the supplemental installer package which is also available at Morpheus Hub alongside the main installer package.


NSX-V support is deprecated though still supported as of Morpheus 6.0.0. It will be removed and unsupported in 6.1.1 and higher.


Items appended with x.x.x are also included in that version
