I am trying to extract some information of a VMWARE host server.
I used the following relevance in order to see all the attributes of the object “device”:
properties of type "device"
That formula shows me the following information.
initial status of <device>: string
pending status of <device>: string
model of <device>: string
vendor of <device>: string
file system type of <device>: string
bios version of <device>: string
bios release date of <device>: time
network adapters of <device>: string
pending restart of <device>: boolean
properties of type “device” vmotion of : string
… and more stuff.
When I use the following relevance in VMWARE hosts,
bios version of device
it shows me the same information that ILO console shows for the BIOS version (e.g I27, P65, etc) for every VMWARE host in the company. However, when I try to get the bios release date property, it fails.
When I use the following relevance,
bios release date of device it fails to show me the proper information. It throws the error:
Singular expression refers to nonexistent object.
I can see the bios release date in the ILO console but by using the previous relevance formula, the bigfix agent fails to bring this information to IEM.
Does anyone know why this might be? Any special configuration to do to IEM, extender manager o VMWARE server?
What relevance formula can I use in order to get the bios release date of a VMWARE HOST server?
What am I doing wrong?
In advance, thanks for your help!
