  • 1.  VM Guest List

    Hello,

    I can see on my vCenter there are so many guest 'vCLS' and this is needed to maintenance the cluster health. I just want to know why this vCLS VM not listed on the tree view on the left side? Also can we make another VM gust to be not listed on the left tree view?

    By design, the vCLS VMs are not shown in the Hosts and Clusters view.
    https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-vSphere/8.0/vsphere-vcenter-esxi-management/GUID-96BD6016-4BE7-4B1C-8269-568D1555B08C.html#:~:text=vCLS%20VMs%20are%20not%20displayed,tab%20of%20the%20vSphere%20Client.

    "vCLS VMs are not displayed in the inventory tree in the Hosts and Clusters tab. vCLS VMs from all clusters within a data center are placed inside a separate VMs and templates folder named vCLS. This folder and the vCLS VMs are visible only in the VMs and Templates tab of the vSphere Client."

    You can hide VMs using vSphere permissions. There is a "No Access" role that might meet your requirements.
