Changing this setting helped me to a great extent. Your post is the closest I've come to extracting all incidents of when a virtual machine has been cloned and all the clone names.
In the Description column of the Events tab for a virtual machine, you can see events for "being cloned to (vmname) on (hostname)". I am trying to extract that historical information from the vcenter database but the Description field is not in the vxp_event table.
Any idea what the underlying sql query is to retrieve this information?
Thanks and Regards,
The only way to see events beyond the 1,000 record limit is to use vCenter client
File > Export > Export Events ...
From there the GUI allows you to select a date range.
Please refer the KB -kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=2110031
If possible, please propose my answer (above) as the answer to this question.
Thanks for your post, but it is off topic. This question is how to view older events records, not how to delete them. It comes up at the top of Google searches because newbie and casual VMware vCenter users need an easy way to see more than 1,000 events.
