The ApplicationHA (for VMware) Console is the predecessor of the Symantec High Availability Console.

You can only configure one console with a VMware vCenter server at a time.

To configure the Symantec High Availability Console with a VMware vCenter Server that is already configured with the ApplicationHA Console, you must upgrade the ApplicationHA Console to the Symantec High Availability Console.

The ApplicationHA Console and the Symantec High Availability Console differ on the following points:

  • Console versions available
  • Supported guest components 
  • Interfaces added in vSphere Client
  • Supported upgrade paths
