February 13, 2023 0 By Allan Kjaer

Rob de Veij has updated one of my favorite tools, for getting alot of information out of VMware vSphere environments.

What’s new:

  • Upgraded RVTools solution to Visual Studio 2022
  • Upgraded RVTools solution to use VMware vSphere Management SDK 8.0
  • Log4net upgraded to version 2.0.15
  • RVToolsPasswordEncryption now uses the mac address instead of a fixed string to encrypt the password.
  • On vInfo tab page new columns: Total Disk capacity in MiB, Folder ID, Fault tolerance role, Reboot poweroff, EFI Secure boot option, and SMBIOS UUID
  • On vCPU tab new column: “Numa Hotadd Exposed” boolean value whether virtual NUMA topology is exposed when CPU hotadd is enabled
  • On vDisk tab page new columns: Disk UUID, Disk sharing mode
  • On all related VM tab pages the tag columns are moved just before the Datacenter column
  • On all VM related tab pages: Changed the VM UUID tooltip text to “VirtualCenter-specific 128-bit UUID of a virtual machine”
  • On vSource tab page new columns: version, patch level and VI SDK Server
  • On vHealth tab page: /storage/archive is excluded for the “free disk capacity” check as the /storage/archive partition can be full by design. https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/57829
  • Bug fix on vInfo tab page: Column “Primary IP Address” didn’t show correct value
  • Bug fix on vNetwork tab page: determining whether an ip address was an ipv4 or ipv6 did not always go well
