The following instructions describe how to run a Virtual Machine Management (VMM) 7.1 inventory task. Notes: (1) These instructions describe how to configure a VMM inventory task based on discovered hosts and guests from an ESXi server but can be changed accordingly for other server types, such as for use with a Hypervisor server. (2) A VMM host is defined as the ESXi or vCenter physical server. A VMM guest is defined as a virtual machine, whether it is a virtual server or virtual workstation, that runs on an ESXi physical server. (3) vCenters are now supported as of VMM 7.1 SP2. (4) Before running a VMM inventory task, ensure that a successful host and guest discovery occurred using an ESXi Administrator user account, as described in the following article:
