Vmware logs

Hi Guys,

My VM hosts were shutdown recently and the high availability kicked in.

I need to find out which machines were migrated at what time, etc.

Please can someone help.

Regards,
K

Check Task and Events on vCenter Server.

you can also check vmware.log (logs) in the Virtual Machine folders.

fyi, machines are NOT Migrated, VMs get restarted on different hosts when a HA event occurs.

Hi Hannccocka, I understand what you are saying. I only suggest this script since HA leverages vmotion and if chgl wants to see where his VM's and which VM's have been moved, this script may provide the information he is looking for... :-)
HA does not leverage vMotion!

VMware HA, restarts VMs on other hosts, when a Host fails, no vMotion is involved!

VMware DRS uses vMotion!
