With the workflows in the Others category, you can enable and disable Fault Tolerance (FT), extract virtual machine information, and find orphaned virtual machines.

Disable FT

Disables Fault Tolerance for a specified virtual machine.

Enable FT

Enables Fault Tolerance for a specified virtual machine.

Extract virtual machine information

Returns the virtual machine folder, host system, resource pool, compute resource, datastore, hard drive sizes, CPU and memory, network, and IP address for a given virtual machine. Might require VMware Tools.

Find orphaned virtual machines

Lists all virtual machines in an orphaned state in the Orchestrator inventory. Lists the VMDK and VMTX files for all datastores in the Orchestrator inventory that have no association with any virtual machines in the Orchestrator inventory. Sends the lists by email (optional).

Get Virtual Machine by Name and BIOS UUID

Searches virtual machines by name and then filters the result with particular universally unique identifier (UUID) in order to identify a unique virtual machine.

Note:

This workflow is needed when DynamicOps calls vRealize Orchestrator workflows having input parameters of VC:VirtualMachine type in order to make the correspondence between a particular DynamicOps and vRealize Orchestrator virtual machine.
