    VM Tags vs Custom Attributes

    nettech1 Hot Shot

      Hi,

       

      We have Dev and Test VMs ruining in the same vmware cluster. In effort to automate some of the manual tasks we would like to assign the environment variables to the VMs.

       

      Ex: A group of web servers WEB01, WEB02, WEB03 should have a DEV label and WEB05, WEB06 would be TEST.

       

      So the question is what should we be used VM Tags or Custom Attributes to assign vms to their environments. The plan is to use the tag or custom attributes later as a filter in powercli when working with a group of the vms.

       

      Thanks
