Virtual Machine Management

Issue/Introduction

Virtual Machine Management is a component of the Server Management Suite, which is built on the Symantec Management Platform (SMP). It helps you to view virtual resource information in your network and perform management tasks on those virtual resources.

Host Summary Report lists of all the hosts on which virtual machines are created. This reports displays information like host name, its IP address, system type, OS running on host, OS version, hardware vendor and model, inventory update time, memory total, total number of guest machine running on the host, memory utilization, CPU utilization, and network usage.

"OS Name" column data collected from ESX hypervisors is not formatted the same way as data from Microsoft hypervisors. The "OS version" column can be empty.

No errors.
