I have come across a number of virtual servers running Windows server that are scanning recently within SLM 8 but do not have a host computer listed. Is it that the host does not have a Snow agent installed?
the Host-Guest-Relation is gathered through one of our Snow Integration Connectors. You can setup the connection to your virtualization environment in the Snow Integration Manager, which will gather the information right from your management portal through a reading user. Once we have this information in Snow License Manager, the hosts will be visible under the computer's details.
Please note, that Snow Integration Connector is a separate product. If you don't have this licensed, please talk to your account manager. Snow Integration Connector will offer you a huge variety of connectors, including cloud connectors to Office 365, MS Azure and Amazon Web Services.
If you have any ongoing questions, please don't hesitate to ask. Keep posting
Thanks for your quick response.
What I should have said was that we are already seeing a lot of virtual servers with host information listed across our Windows server estate but, there are a number of Virtual servers that scan without a host listed in SLM 8, this should not be possible, as you cannot have a virtual server without a host.
We are running Snow Inventory 3.2 and we have the VMware vSphere 5.1_1 connected and configured within the Snow Integration Manager. There is another VMware vSphere connector listed in the available connectors in SIM is there a difference between the two of them? should we be using the other one as there is no version listed?
it is important to know, that you are using Inventory 3. I have to step out at this point. Maybe someone else has an idea?
