Link Virtual Machine to VM Host using Business Adapter

Jump to solution

Hi,

Just want to ask if it is possible to link Virtual Machine to a VM Host using the Business Adapter Studio? I can't seem to find any Virtual machine or VM Host  field in the Business Adapter.

Appreciate any feedback that would be provided.

Many thanks.

Good Afternoon,

Unfortunately you can not Link a virtual machine to  a host via a business adapter. However, check under 'Data Inputs'. Select the 'Inventory tab' click the 'On-off-upload' button. In this section you have templates that can be used to import inventory manually. (Including guest and host relationships.)

Thanks you so much. Will do try to explore the One-off upload option. Cheers!

If your FNMS is on prem, you can use a Business Import to link VMs to Hosts using SQL (custom query). No option for the cloud though.

Hello,
I was wondering if you were able to successfully match VMs and Hosts using one-off upload.
I am not sure which templates/columns I should actually use to link VM to a host.
I have list of hosts with serial numbers already in fnms. same for VMs.

@mfranz, since we are on prem, can you also advise what tables/columns should be updated. Perhaps it would be easier to configure.
