  • 1.  Export vcenter - esx relationships from CCA to CMDB

    Posted Apr 11, 2017 09:16 AM

    Hi all,

    can someone confirm that, probabily from release 12.8.3, is it possible to export the relationship between vCenter Server and attached ESX host from CCA to CMDB?

    Can I have an example (screenshot) about this feature?


    Best regards

    This solution is supported.  You will need to use a Network Profile discovery to discover the vCenter or ESX host given the proper VMWare credentials entered in the credential vault.  Make sure in the network profile to use a scan policy using the softagent.

    After discovery you should notice the vCenter, ESX, and VMs also get populated into CCA.  Each of these discovered hosts should contain the Virtual Relationship listed in the Relationships tab. 

    For exporting relationships, make sure to use an SDM attribute profile that includes the Virtual Relationships checkbox option. 


    Here is a link to the documentation regarding exporting CIs.
