I was needing help from the pro's at VMTurbo to create a group just for a certain type of VM so I could report off of them. Figured I would pass on their knowledge on how they were able to help.
So we label our vm's according to its function, I.E. PRD=Production, DEV=Development, TST=Test, you get the idea...
I needed to create a group for storage placement and wanted to exclude DEV and TST from going on the higher tiered storage.
How to filter out DEV boxes? Oh.. and exclude a couple of dev boxes from the list in the process....
Here is the argument:
So we had two vms, named DEVUAG01 and DEVVAS01 and so needed to exclude them from this list.
I know some of you may be saying, well, duh.. but for me.. I was at a loss. This was exactly what I needed!
Anyway.. More to come later..
Have a great day!
