Viewing vCenter server properties

After adding a vCenter server to BMC Server Automation, you can view the server properties of a VM or ESX host on that vCenter server. Using the Parent Host, Parent Datacenter, and Parent Cluster properties, you can determine the location of virtual machines and ESX hosts in the vCenter hierarchy.

To view vCenter server properties

  1. In the Servers folder, navigate to a vCenter server and expand the Live node.
  2. Expand the VMware vCenter Server object type.
  3. Browse to a virtual machine or ESX host.
  4. In the content editor, review the Server Properties for the virtual machine or ESX host by scrolling to the right.
    For example, to determine the location of virtual machines and ESX hosts in the vCenter hierarchy, review the following properties:
