Windows Server Usage Tracker Report - Machine Type Unidentified RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to run MAP tool in one of my customer environment, who uses VMware on the physical servers and Windows OS in the Virtual Machines.

    With respect to the Windows Server Usage Tracker report, MAP tool is unable to identify the “Machine Type (Physical or Virtual)” for few servers. Without this information, It will be difficult for me to conclude if a particular server requires a license or not.

    Customer have Windows Server Data Center licenses – which means if a particular server is virtual and is hosted on the Data Center host server it does not require a license (Unlimited virtualization rights); but otherwise if that machine is physical it requires a license.

    I have also looked at the VM Report, which just shows me there are 87 virtual machines but there isn't any data populated for the host OS.

    Will someone be able to guide me how to retrieve this data.

    Thanks in advance.

    Best Regards,
