The dependency table is the tabular form of the dependency map. In addition to specifying the virtual machine name and services installed, it provides the virtual machine state, virtual machine status, discovery status, and the time elapsed since last successful discovery of the selected virtual machine.

You view a dependency table by selecting Application Dependencies > Table View on the Application Dependencies tab. The tables in the view give you details about the first level of application dependency for the selected virtual machine, together with an incoming dependency table and an outgoing dependency table.

The three tables are sub-tables of the inventory table.

The incoming dependencies table displays details of all virtual machines that depend on the selected virtual machine.

The virtual machine name table displays the details of the selected virtual machine.

The outgoing dependencies table displays the details of all virtual machines on which the selected virtual machine depends.

If a virtual machine has no incoming dependencies, a No incoming dependencies message is displayed in place of the incoming dependencies table. If the virtual machine has no outgoing dependencies, a No outgoing dependencies message is displayed in place of the outgoing dependencies table.

Protection Group

Displays the Site Recovery Manager protection group of the virtual machine.

A blank field indicates that the virtual machine does not belong to any Site Recovery Manager protection group.

Recovery Plans

Displays a comma-separated list of Site Recovery Manager recovery plans for the virtual machine.

A blank field indicates that the virtual machine does not belong to any Site Recovery Manager recovery plan.

The Protection Group and Recovery Plans column appears only if you have integrated vRealize Infrastructure Navigator with Site Recovery Manager. For information about Site Recovery Manager integration, see vRealize Infrastructure Navigator Installation and Configuration Guide.
