  1. The release notes for Cloud Director 10.3.2 say:

    NSX Data Center for vSphere to NSX-T Data Center Мigration Enhancements. The MoveVApp API supports routed vApp network configuration.

    Is this supported in version 1.3.1 of the migration tool, as it’s the missing part of our migration puzzle.

    1. The 1.3.1 version of the NSX Migration for Cloud Director is not supported with VCD 10.3.2. The next version of the migration tool (1.3.2) will support migration of routed vApp networks and VCD 10.3.2.
