NEW VMware Skyline Advisor Pro Release with Enhanced Notifications

We’re pleased to announce a new VMware Skyline Advisor Pro release with enhanced notification capabilities, including End of General Support / End of Technical Guidance notifications for ESXi hosts, notification panel enhancements, and VMware Success 360 Insights Reports Powered by Skyline notifications. Additionally, we added several new proactive Findings, bringing the total number of issues that Skyline checks to over 870.  

Read about the new Findings released in March and April:

April Findings  

Remember that all of your Skyline Collectors must be on v3.0 or above to access Skyline Advisor Pro, which is smarter, easier and 12X faster than Skyline Advisor. If you have a TAM, you must have Skyline Collector 3.1 installed to enable TAM Health Check Reports Powered by Skyline. If you have the Auto Upgrade feature enabled, your Collectors will update automatically. If not, you can download the latest version from the Collector user interface. 

A summary of the new features is below. For additional details review the Skyline Advisor Pro Release Notes. Log into Skyline Advisor Pro today to see the new enhancements!       

New features:     

End of General Support (EoGS) / End of Technical Guidance (EoTG) notifications for ESXi Hosts   

You will now see EoGS / EoTG notifications for ESXi hosts in the Notifications panel located on the Skyline Advisor Pro dashboard. This enables you to view the host expirations along with expirations for other inventory in your environment. Another Notifications panel enhancement you will notice is that “Unhealthy Collector” notifications will disappear from the panel in a timely manner, once you have restored your Skyline Collector(s) to health. 

VMware Success 360 Insights Reports Powered by Skyline Notification Enhancements

Exclusive to VMware Success 360 customers, you will now receive email notifications when a VMware Success 360 Insights Report has been generated. Those emails will include context-sensitive links directly to the report(s) in Skyline Advisor Pro. Additionally, when you download a report in PDF format, the files will include context-sensitive links to the reports in Skyline Advisor Pro. 

Read more about these enhancements in the blog announcement.
