For those of you unaware VMware recently released the VMware vSphere Mobile Watchlist
What does it do?
“VMware vSphere Mobile Watchlist allows you to monitor the virtual machines you care about in your vSphere infrastructure remotely on your phone. Discover diagnostic information about any alerts on your VMs using VMware Knowledge Base Articles and the web. Remediate problems from your phone by using power operations or delegate the problem to someone on your team back at the datacenter.”
Use power operations to remediate many situations remotely from your device.
VMS AT A GLANCE
Review the status of these VMs from your device including: their state, health, console and related objects.
I have been using it for a day or so and I have found it very useful, presently I have it installed on my Android Phone and Tablet.
If you consider using this in conjunction with VPN or whatever your preferred secure method to connect to your work LAN when you are “out and about” its a great way to quickly take a look at any problematic VMs without needing to fire up your laptop.
Its available on Android and iOS and is well worth a quick look.
