Data Object Description

This data object type encapsulates a typical set of host configuration information that is useful for displaying and configuring a host.

VirtualCenter can retrieve this set of information very efficiently even for a large set of hosts.

Properties

Name Type Description
activeDiagnosticPartition*HostDiagnosticPartition

The diagnostic partition that will be set as the current diagnostic partition on the host.
adminDisabled*xsd:boolean

If the flag is true, the permissions on the host have been modified such that it is only accessible through local console or an authorized centralized management application. This flag is affected by the EnterLockdownMode and ExitLockdownMode operations.

This flag is supported in VirtualCenter only. The value returned from host should be ignored.
See EnterLockdownMode
See ExitLockdownMode

Since VI API 2.5
datastorePrincipal*xsd:string

Datastore principal user
dateTimeInfo*HostDateTimeInfo

Date/Time related configuration

Since VI API 2.5
featureVersion*HostFeatureVersionInfo[]

List of feature-specific version information. Each element refers to the version information for a specific feature.

Since vSphere API 4.1
fileSystemVolume*HostFileSystemVolumeInfo

Since vSphere API 4.0
localSwapDatastore*ManagedObjectReference
to a Datastore

Datastore visible to this host that may be used to store virtual machine swapfiles, for virtual machines executing on this host. The value of this property is set or unset by invoking UpdateLocalSwapDatastore. The policy for using this datastore is determined by the compute resource configuration's vmSwapPlacement property in concert with each individual virtual machine configuration's swapPlacement property.

Note: Using a host-specific swap location may degrade VMotion performance.

Since VI API 2.5
multipathState*HostMultipathStateInfo

Storage multipath state information.

Since vSphere API 4.0
network*HostNetworkInfo

Network system information.
