How to identify the VMware ESX, Cluster and VCenter of a virtual machine sent from the UCMDB?

Hi,

I have been asked to identify if the virtual machine travels with the ESX, cluster and VCenter relationships from the ucmdb.
With which field / attribute do I identify this information?
From computer equipment?

The UCMDB administrator tells me that a virtual machine may be in more than one ESX ...

First of all, Thanks.

Hi Marcella, 

We hope you are doing great, in Asset Manager you can check the VM machones on the table amComputer( IT Equipment) in that table you can check the Hardhaware, Drivers,OS,Aplication and more details of the VM machine that you need, if you can check one appling a filter by GlobalId or Model depending of your information that you wants to check.

There is also a set of Client-Resource Relationships to track the relationships between Host, Cluster, and VM.  Look under "Asset lifecycle | IT services and virtualization".  Generally from an ITAM perspective we tend to only care about the Cluster the VM lives in not the specific ESX Server within that Cluster it is running on at any given moment.  That presumes VMotion is enabled of course.  If the VM is not able to hop around then you can track directlly to the Host.
