About Host Status

Updated: September 11, 2009

Applies To: Virtual Machine Manager 2008, Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2, Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2 SP1

You can use the Host Properties dialog box to check the overall status of a host, the status of the agent that is installed on the host, and the status of the virtualization software that is installed on the host. These are important indicators of the operational state of a host.

noteNote
The host status values do not change in the VMM Administrator Console until the VMM server performs a host refresh, which runs automatically every 30 minutes. You can run a refresh on demand by right-clicking the host and then clicking Refresh.

The following table describes the host status types and values on the Status tab of Host Properties.
