The vCenter interface (connector) has been expanded with additional guest information: the host name, domain, operating system, CPU information and other fields are now also transmitted for the guests. Thus, the Guest Devices can also be created as an asset into Spider if they are not captured by the hardware inventory.
Fix: Imports that did not include any information about the connector instance were assigned an incorrect import priority so that they were only carried out if there were no competing imports with a higher priority.
Fix: Due to a database error, the installation of the recognition module could, under certain circumstances, be aborted.
