As a vSphere administrator, use the vSphere Client to monitor a VM that was deployed by DevOps in the Kubernetes environment.

You cannot manage the VM lifecycle from the vSphere Client.


A DevOps engineer has deployed a VM. See Deploy a Virtual Machine in vSphere with Tanzu.


  1. In the vSphere Client, navigate to the host cluster that has vSphere with Tanzu enabled.
  2. Under Namespaces, expand the namespace where a VM was deployed.
  3. Select the VM to view and click the Summary tab.
    Make sure that you see the Developer Managed tag at the top of the Summary page.
    The page displays information about the VM, including its guest OS and IP addresses.
  4. Click Switch to New View in the upper-right corner of the page to display additional details such as the VM class and VM image, as well as the namespace, where the VM runs.
