How to View Compliance Information for a Physical Network Adapter on a Host in VMM


Applies To: System Center 2012 SP1 - Virtual Machine Manager, System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager

Compliance information lets you see whether the settings on physical network adapters on a host are consistent with the configuration in Virtual Machine Manager (VMM). For example, you can see whether all the IP subnets and VLANs that are included in a network site in a logical network are assigned to a physical network adapter.

If you have System Center 2012 Service Pack 1 (SP1) or System Center 2012 R2 and you want more detail about compliance information for logical switches, see How to View Host Network Adapter Settings and Increase Compliance with Logical Switch Settings in VMM instead.

To view compliance information for a physical network adapter

  1. In the VMM console, open the Fabric workspace.

  2. In the Fabric pane, expand Networking, and then click Logical Networks.

  3. On the Home tab, in the Show group, click Hosts.

  4. In the Logical Network Information for Hosts pane, expand the host, and then click a physical network adapter.

  5. In the Network Compliance column, view the compliance.

    Fully compliant

    All IP subnets and VLANs that are included in the network site are assigned to the network adapter.

    Partially compliant

    If you compare the IP subnets and VLANs that are included in the network site with those that are assigned to the network adapter, there is only a partial match.

    In the details pane, the Logical network information section lists the assigned IP subnets and VLANs for the physical network adapter. If an adapter is partially compliant, you can view the reason in the Compliance errors section.

    Non compliant

    None of the IP subnets and VLANs that are defined for the logical network are assigned to the physical network adapter.


    In addition to the compliance information, you can also view detailed information about the physical network adapter, such as the assigned IP address and MAC address, and the associated virtual networks.
