Hi

In vSphere 5.1 the 'ownership' column is not there however it was present in vSphere 4.1.

Is there any way to get it back as I need to provide a list of all the VM owners in our environment?

Thanks

It does not appear to be in the list of columns you can add.

You could always add in the Notes.

I had a feeling that was the case, thanks for the confirmation.

No way of customising and adding in your own?

Yes, You can add additional columns, here:-

Select Administration > Custom Attributes > Add >

then type Owner > Virtual Machines.

This should add the Owner column for you.
