In a text file, add the names of virtual machines and hosts that you want to exclude from importing in the following format, and save the file on the ETL Engine Server where the ETL runs:
To find UUIDs, select the required virtual machine or host in the Workspace, and click View lookup. The Lookup value column in the Lookup Details table shows the UUID values.
The use of regular expressions is not supported.
- In the Use file at path box, specify the path to this text file.
- After you run the ETL, verify that the specified virtual machines and hosts are not displayed in the hierarchy.
To exclude specific hosts and virtual machines from importing, obtain their UUIDs and add them to a text file as follows:
Where, vh:vmw is the system type and 44454c4c-4600-1054-8052-cac04f525231 is the UUID of host_1. Similarly, gm:vmw is the system type and 4208badb-6a91-23d1-c6b5-061745b2c8d9 is the UUID of vm_1, and so on.
You can specify these names in any case.
After the ETL runs, these specified virtual machines and hosts are not imported.
