Can ZCM sync VMWare vCenter hosts inventory?

I'm looking to use ZCM to automatically track and keep inventory of more of my IT environment. Has anyone attempted or know of a way to have the inventory of vCenter to be synced with ZCM inventory? If a vm already has the zcm agent on it, it will show up in ZCM, but I would like to also track the other VM's without the ZCM agent as well by using vCenter's inventory too.

If this seems crazy I'll move along and skip this idea. Just seemed like an opportunity to improve the usefulness of our ZCM inventory.

Well there is a ZCM inventory-only agent if you don't want to have the complete zenworks agents on these machines, see sysreq here: https://www.novell.com/documentation/zenworks113/zen11_system_requirements/data/zen11_system_requirements.html
