Is it okay to use VMware infrastructure instead of gathering Inventory of hardware and softwares in Zero footprints for Vcenters ?

Re: Vcenters action suggestion

VMware infrastructure is required to link the VMs to the host and is the only way to inventory vCenter devices. You would then perform the regular inventory actions against the VMs.

Re: Vcenters action suggestion

Hi,

For vCenters, you will need to do both:

  1. Collect VMware infratructure,
    as mentioned, to assign VMs to their hosts.
  2. Collect hardware & software inventory
    to account for the OS (usually Windows Server) the vCenter is installed on and other applications running on that same machine. That is only, if you're not getting these details from another source already, like SCCM or so.
