  • 1.  vCenter, esxi audit

    Posted Jan 28, 2021 06:07 AM

    There are a lot of users in our company who uses vcenter to create machines, make changes in the machine etc. What I want to achive is track those changes made by that particular user. I have heard that its possible via vRealize log insight but my company doesnot want to invest any further in our vcenter environment. Is there any other possible way to achive this. I need to keep track of changes made by staff on those machines like creation of machine, increase of RAM, hardisk etc. by that particular user.

    Will be very grateful for any kind of suggestion.
