VM List Overview And Synchronization

During adding a VMware host, you have the option to set how often the host information will be synchronized automatically. However, you don't have to wait for the automatic sync to complete. You can synchronize the information manually. But before you know how to do it. Learn how to view the list of available virtual machines.

To open the list of available virtual machines on the VMware host, you need to go to the VMware tab. Next, you have to click Manage & Restore.

Then a new window with the VM list appears. At the bottom there is information about the last successful synchronization. The list of machines can be sorted according to different columns (e.g. name, online or machine status). You can extend the column list with the sprocket icon. By clicking the magnifying glass icon, we will go to the filters that can be configured to display specific devices. We can use advanced filters by clicking the Advanced search button.

In addition to the list of virtual machines, there is a sync now button at the top. Use it when you want to update information about virtual machines instantly.

On the left, you can manage the resource.

And choose: Host and Clusters or VMs and Templates.
