Vmware Monitor

The Vmware monitor can control a vmware virtual machine. The monitor is able to start a virtual machine and optionally reset to a snapshot on every iteration. When a fault occurs it will reset to the specified snapshot (if any).

Tip
When using with vSphere/ESXi prefix the image name with the storeage location in bracets. Example: "[ha-datacenter/datastore1] guest/guest.vmx"

Parameters

  • Vmx — Path to virtual machine

  • Host — Name of host machine (optional)

  • Login — Username for authentication on the remote machine (optional)

  • Password — Password for authentication on the remote machine (optional)

  • HostType — Type of remote host (optional, defaults to "Default")

  • HostPort — TCP/IP port on the remote host (optional)

    • Default — Default

    • VIServer — vCenter Server, ESX/ESXi hosts, VMWare Server 2.0
