Host Affinity collected is not replicated in UI
We have Vmware inventory rule to collect the inventory from VCenter. we have few vm host rules in the Vcenter, same is being collected by the inventory rule.
However on the UI, it is not getting replicated, Host affinity values is not showing as enabled for the corresponding vm machine. Any help on how to troubleshoot the issue would be helpful.
Are you able to post any screenshots or other information to illustrate what you see? Screenshots showing both the configuration in VCenter and what FlexNet Manager Suite shows may be helpful.
Some thoughts I would be considering here are:
- Generally missing host details on a VM indicate that the VM has not been referenced in any virtual inventory that has been gathered, but hardware/software inventory has been gathered from the VM. You could look in the virtual inventory NDI file(s) gathered from the host to see what details are recorded in there.
- You could check in the history of the inventory device record to see if host details have changed over time. If you see changes that may give insight into some scenarios.
- The host affinity flag may be set based on inventory details gathered from the VM, and not require details of the host. Or maybe the VM inventory device record did have a host specified in the past and had the host affinity flag set from that.
