Custom updates to vCenter via VMTools
Posted on 2010-08-23
Already VMTools updates important information to vCenter via VMTools such as the operating system.
Is there a way to have it update other information that may be important in my settings?
For example I have a custom field in vCenter for versions of a particular app. I also have a script that reports the version of the app running. I would like to have VMTools populate that information to vCenter so that it is always up to date. As of now there is now guarantee that the app owners update vCenter when they update the App.
I understand that I could have an application update it directly to the SQL database, but my servers have no connections through the firewall to the SQL Database. This is by design and will not be changed.
