So a weird situation, theres a machine that we have that noone know where its at.  I can confirm its a vm by decoding the MAC on the Nic that says its vmware plus vmtools.  However, it doesn't show up in vcenter, my only thought is possible it's windows name differs from the name in vcenter or possibly sitting on a standalone esxi host somewhere.  We are running mix of 5.5 and 6.0.  Is there a way within the guest to determine which host it resides on?
