Comments

Does this workflow expect the VM to be available on VMware?? Or if the VM has been deleted as a result of a Director workflow... Can this be used to force director to remove the entry / rescan and remove if the vm was removed in vmware.

if you add a disk or RAM to a VM and want to trigger a inventory on the VM vs. vCenter with all its VM's this is the ticket.
