How do you handle parents and virtualisation clusters

Hi,

do you have any suggestions on how to handle parents and virtualisation clusters? E.g. I have multiple vm/citrix hosts in a pool/cluster and on top some VMs.

Now what parent would I select for the VM? All hosts in the pool?

And it might be, that one host in that pool is down (failure or maintenance), but the VM is migrated to an other host in that pool. How would that be handled?

Thanks for hints and suggestions :slight_smile: !! /Götz

We have a small tool for VMware VMs that uses the info in the service check “ESX Hostsystem” to set the VM’s parent host. The script is run regularily by cron.
