You can view ESXi hypervisor inventory details including name, version, and the build number within Hosts and Clusters Inventory.

Hosts and Cluster inventory displays the ESXi hypervisor version, and the build number. If a vCenter Server or ESXi hypervizor host is part of a pre-validated integrated solution, such as VMware Cloud Foundation (VCF), the associated Solution Tag is displayed next to the object within the inventory tree.

Skyline identifies the following pre-validated integrated solutions and lists them as Solution Tags within Skyline Advisor. These tags are displayed to bring awareness to pre-validated, integrated solutions that have been deployed within your environment.

  • VMware Validated Design (VVD)

  • VxRail

  • VMware Cloud Foundation (VCF)

Skyline also identifies VMware products and solutions that are linked with inventory objects. These include vCenter Server, vSAN, NSX-V, Horizon Connection Server and vRealize Operations Manager. Any products that are linked with the chosen inventory object will appear within the Products Linked column.

You can filter based on Solution Tag or Products Linked.


Inventory details for vCenter Servers that have not been added to a Skyline Collector will not appear within Inventory.
