All commands that you use in the vCloud Air vSphere Client Plug-in are associated with a task. Tasks help you track the progress of a command and check whether the command was successful or whether it failed. Task details help you troubleshoot problems.

You can view tasks in the Recent Tasks panel. Tasks are user based. All the tasks that you perform in either the plug-in or the vCloud Air portal with your user name are displayed in the panel.


View your tasks in the Recent Tasks panel on the right.

To view all tasks, click the All tab.

To view tasks that are currently running, click the Running tab.

To view failed tasks, click the Failed tab.


To view details of a task, click on it.

You can view details such as the start and finish time of a task, how long it was in the queue, who initiated it, and where the task was performed.
