Hello, @cmturner20, and @Takeshi Kuriyama

Cisco UCS Manager Plugin Version 3.0(4) for VMware vSphere HTML Client supports vCenter version 7.0. The plugin does not support client version 7.0 U1 currently. This behavior will be handled in the upcoming release which will be built with vSphere Client SDK 7.0 U1.

 

Please open a support ticket if this issue is observed in the 7.0 version.

Has anyone attempted upgrading to vCenter 7.0U3 or U3a?  Curious if this version also works on U3, or if we need to wait for an update again.
