    Virtual Center Tasks and Events

    kurtwest Enthusiast

      I can see in VC when events occur and who initiated them, but how can I see what was done exactly.  My specific question is with the event ReconfigureVirtual Machine.  I see when and who did something, but is there a way to tell what was done?  More memory, add a nic and so on.

          VC does not provide that detail, there are several logs on the ESX hosts that you can check and should provide this detail, I think the vmware.log is probably the file it is in...

           

          o     Vmkernel - /var/log/vmkernel – records activities related to the virtual machines and ESX server

          o     ESX Server host agent log - /var/log/vmware/hostd.log - Contains information on the agent that manages and configures the ESX Server host and its virtual machines (Search the file date/time stamps to find the log file it is currently outputting to.)

          o     VirtualCenter agent - /var/log/vmware/vpx - Contains information on the agent that communicates with VirtualCenter

          o     Virtual Machines - The same directory as the affected virtual machine’s configuration files; named vmware.log - Contain information when a virtual machine crashes or ends abnormally
