Viewing Details about a Virtual Machine

  • Last updated on

Data about virtualized environments is collected and presented on the Device Overview page. If the device hosts virtual machines, or is a guest virtual machine, then a Virtual Machine section is visible.

You can:

  • determine whether a device is a virtual machine, or hosts virtual machines.
  • view the type of virtualization software being used, including version and edition.
  • for host machines, view the number of guest machines being hosted.
  • for virtual machines, view the running state, number of virtual processors, configured memory and storage space configured.

For host machines, you can drill down to view details about the guest virtual machines hosted on that device.

To have a hyperlink associating the host and guest machines by name, the machines must be part of the same scan range and managed by the same Onsite Manager. If the host and guest machines are Device Managers, or managed by different Onsite Managers, then the guest machines may be detected, but there is no link to view details about the guest machines.

To view virtual machine details

  1. In Service Center, click Status > Devices.

  2. Click a device name.

    To filter the list of devices to display virtual machines, from the Device Role list, select VM Guest.

    • host machine name
    • VM software type
