To effectively monitor, control, and manage the virtual machines making up your VMware Tanzu Application Service for VMs (TAS for VMs) deployment, you might have to identify which VM corresponds to a particular job in TAS for VMs. You can find the CID of a particular VM from Tanzu Operations Manager by navigating to the Status tab in the TAS for VMs tile.

If you have deployed TAS for VMs to VMware vSphere, you can also identify which TAS for VMs job corresponds to which VM using the vCenter vSphere client.

The CID shown in Tanzu Operations Manager is the name of the machine in vCenter.
