    Hi,

     

    I think it would be useful from a management perspective to have the ability to create VM groups based on the IP address (or addresses) of VMs. I know it requires VMware Tools (or other kind of "tools" depending on the hypervisor platform) but I guess it could really help in certain situations.

     

    I'm thinking about use cases where we need to create groups like:

    • All VMs which have an IP between X.X.X.X and Y.Y.Y.Y

    or

    • All VMs which have an IP equals to 10.*.*.*

     

    Kind regards,
