I am trying to modify the Virtual Machine Properties List View to also list the VM hardware version but I can't seem to find it....
Virtual Machinde hardware version property is still not collected today (just checked 6.1).
We have install version Version 184.108.40.20638036 and don't see this metric.
Someone have news?
On Version 220.127.116.1128905 - still not there. I just noticed you may also be looking in the wrong place, once implemented it will probably appear under "Properties" not "Metrics":
Would please explain the use case scenario? I will try to address it. If you prefer not to post it here, you can also contact me directly by mail tbaublys (at) vmware.com
I would guess that he/she just wants a quick way to see what hardware version all of his VMs are at.
I found this thread today because I'm looking to do the same thing. We have over 6000 VMs across 6 vCenters and it would be awesome to get that all in one view and find all of the lower hardware versions.
It's rather disappointing that this metric is not collected in vRops.
It's now present in vROps. From the All Metrics view on a VM, All Properties -> Version.
