How to track down the Physical Host running VMware Workstation or Player

Hi,

How do I track down rogue VMs on my network running any virtual client software like Virtual Box, VMware Workstation/Player etc.

I have tracked down some of them using nmap and that is how I know they are using VMware Workstation or Player but I get no information on the physical host. All I need is the physical host MAC address and then I know who owns the machine from there.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Jeff

Hi,

There is another switch in nmap that tracked it down, the A switch, produced the MAC of the physical host.

nmap -sA
