Where can I find the name of a vCenter Server?

For an ESX Server, I can find the name using the $_ - & gt; Summary - & gt; config - & gt; name, where $_ is a host view.

How to find the name of a vCenter Server?  There really a distinct name to the host name of the system?  If this isn't the case, I would still find it.

Where it appears in the object hierarchy?

Thank you.


3 ways:

(1) because you connect to a vCenter server, you can retrieve the name of the - server variable

2) there is an advanced vpx option that contains the name of the instance of vCenter: VirtualCenter.InstanceName who should be its host name, either long or short

(3) If you are on a host ESX (i) which is managed by vCenter host, there is an exposed property called managementServerIp - http://www.vmware.com/support/developer/vc-sdk/visdk400pubs/ReferenceGuide/vim.host.Summary.html#managementServerIp where you can do a search of reserve if you have correctly configured to get FULL of DNS domain name

  • Where can I find the name of the widget I used?

    OK, this must be the most stupid problem all week: weeks ago, I used a widget to create a nice little effect. Now, for the life of me, I don't know WHAT widget I used, and I can't coax a name out of it. Is there a clever way to check the name / and or the manufacturer of a widget that is already in use?

    Go to the layers Panel on the site that you've added the widget to Widgets are listed as <> name of the Widget. If you hold alt/opt when you click the triangle to open the contents of the layer, it will also open the content groups and widgets of composition, making it easier to find.

    Otherwise, many producers add comments with their names in the generated HTML code. If you view the source code of the web page where you have added the widget, you might be able to see the name here.

    I hope this helps.

  • IP address: where can I find the ips for outgoing incoming mail adreesss

    where can I find the adreesss ips for outgoing mail

    You have to bring (and do you mean the server names) from your ISP or, where appropriate, your separate email provider.

    If you mean where they are on your system, you must provide the program messaging and the version and maybe able to tell or refer you to someone who can we'lll.

    In Windows Mail, you would look in tools / accounts / properties / servers.  In Outlook 2007, you'd look in tools / account settings / and double-click the account in question.  Others are different.

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck!

    where can I find the security code to access my wireless network.


    Check with the manufacturer of the router's support and most have forums and excellent documentation online.
    You should be able to access the router to set a new SSID and password if necessary.

    You must know the SSID (name of the router) and the password.

    If you do not know these you can find in the running on the WiFi system now with this
    free tool. This is not a crack, it should be run on a local computer that has access (or access)
    to your router. Sure, the information will not be there if Windows was reinstalled or information
    has been deleted otherwise.

    What kind of file is it? What is its extension (the characters
    After the dot at the end of the file name)? And what program is trying
    to open it and needs a product key?

    Please answer these questions, but I'll also venture a guess: you
    try to open a file with Microsoft Word and Word .docx or .doc
    request a product key.
    If this is the case, in all probability, your computer comes with a trial version
    version of Microsoft Office pre-installed. Your trial period is now in place and if
    you want to continue using it, you must buy a copy and get a
    product key for this.
