Hi David. Are you wanting to test functionality? If so, you can create a “dummy” or empty VM and power it on then protect it with ZVR and do test recoveries.
As of 4.5 U1 vCD 8.0.1 is supported. Here is the ZVR interoperability matrix. http://s3.amazonaws.com/zertodownload_docs/Latest/Zerto%20Virtual%20Replication%20Operability%20Matrix.pdf
We are still testing it in QA and expect it to be in an update to 4.5 which is generally sometime about 90 days from the GA of updates from VMware’s update. If you have an urgent need, we recommend you contact Support.
ZVM supports vCSA. In the instructions you referenced, it tells how to enable it for vCSA. Are you unsuccessful after following the instructions to enable it with vCSA?
