New Features/Fixes

Adding additional 5 fields to the Guest VM table

  • Guest Hostname: This is the DNS name of the guest OS
  • Guest VM Disk Capacity: This is the VMTools/OS’s perspective of provisioned capacity
  • Guest VM Disk Used: This is the VMTools/OS’s perspective of the used capacity
  • VM Tools version: Installed VM Tools version.
    Please note: if this field is populated (3rd party VM tools is installed) there is a chance that the prior 3 fields might also be blank or zero as they are un-retrievable.
  • Used Memory: Is a more precise measurement of consumed Used Memory outside the VMDK container assignment itself.
  • We have changed the order of the fields in the Guest VM table

 

Known Issues

If the customer has a 3rd party VM tools installed there is a chance that Guest Hostname, Guest VM Disk Capacity, Guest VM Disk used and VM Tools version might not be populated
