clintonskitson/vmguest — version 0.0.1 Jul 9th 2013


This is the vmguest module. This module contains a custom facter that leverages VM Tools in a VMware Virtual Machine to look at the clientinfo.vminstanceuuid field that is set for the VM in vCenter. This setting persistently lives in the VMX file of the VM, but can be set manually from the GUI or by other API methods.
