I wanted to know if anyone has used vRealize to show VM's that havent been logged into for a number of days? We currently have a pretty manual process to determine if a VM is aging (last logged into over 90 days ago) and are looking for an automated process to do this. Has anyone done this?
I've not done it before, but I'd probably tackle it by using Log Insight with the agent installed on VMs that watches for log entries (or the absence thereof) and triggers alerts on the relevant VM. Those alerts get forwarded to vROps to warn of no logins. The problem is going to be how you distinguish between a person logging in and a process, and that's where idle VMs detection comes in handy.
