If the object name in the vRealize Configuration Manager template results does not match the name of the object in vRealize Operations Manager, use vRealize Operations Manager to correlate the object names and ensure that you are evaluating and remediating the same object.

To verify that you are working with the same object, use the data in vRealize Configuration Manager to correlate the object name, the guest object name, and the DNS name.

To determine if you must correlate the object names, see Differing Object Names for Compliance Objects.


In vRealize Configuration Manager, click Console and select Virtual Environments > vCenter > Guests > Summary.


In the Guest column, locate the name used in vRealize Operations Manager and identify the Guest Machine Name and the DNS Name that vRealize Configuration Manager uses.

The Guest Machine name and the DNS name are commonly the names used in the template results.
