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

To find out the status of operations in Virtual Machine Manager, administrators monitor detailed job status instead of alerts. You can perform comprehensive job monitoring through Jobs view or through the Jobs window, which can be displayed from any view. Reporting is provided through System Center Operations Manager 2007.
