View Virtual Machines on Machines

You can view the virtual machines created on different machines (or grouped by rack). The virtual machines can be viewed as a list of names or icons with each entry representing a virtual machine object.

A summary of the properties of a machine appears below the virtual machines pane when the user selects a virtual machine. This summary contains the information on the selected object. The virtual machine control panel contains the controls listed in the table below.
