I want to query the view composer database to find out the last compose date for view desktops then schedule a reboot of the oldest desktops.  But I  have not been able to find that information in the database.  Anyone know the table that this would be in, and what it would be called?

if you have a look in the View Composer SQL database that you have created for use for VMware View 4.5.

table dbo_SVI_SIM_CLONE

has SIM_CLONE names, VM_NAME, GOLDEN_MASTER, LAST_SYNC_TIME and VM_UUID.

table dbo_SVI_DEPLOYMENT_GROUP

has VM_SS_CREATE_TIME

table dbo_SVI_REPLICA

has GOLDEN_SS_CREATE_TIME

I'm sure you could use these timestamps in your scripts if you wanted.

Since I don't have these View desktops registering in DNS restarting by name didn't work.  Is there a table that you know of that I could query for Last_Sync_Time and IP address instead of VM_NAME?   The reason for this is that View was so successful that the demand has exceeds the host resources when a large number of users trying getting a session at once.  So while we beg for money to buy 2 new host servers I set the pool to never disconnect the sessions.   But to keep from filling the disk space I want to query for the oldest VM's then pass the IP to powershell to restart computer which triggers view composer to destroy the desktop and create a fresh one.  This way we have control over how many users are forced to log into a new session each morning.

Thank you very much for your help.
