Now Available – VMware vSphere Mobile Watchlist

VMware vSphere Mobile Watchlist allows you to monitor the virtual machines you care about in your vSphere infrastructure remotely on your phone. Discover diagnostic information about any alerts on your VMs using VMware Knowledge Base Articles and the web. Remediate problems from your phone by using power operations or delegate the problem to someone on your team back at the datacenter.
IMPORTANT NOTE: A VMware vSphere installation (5.0 and above) is required to use VMware vSphere Mobile Watchlist. Access to your vSphere infrastructure may need a secure access method like VPN. Contact your IT department for further assistance.



    Select a subset of VMs from your VMware vSphere VM inventory to tell the app what VMs to track. Use multiple lists to organize these important VMs.
    Review the status of these VMs from your device including: their state, health, console and related objects.
    Got an alert on your VM? Let VMware vSphere Mobile Watchlist suggest what KB Articles might help you or search the web to gather more information.
    Use power operations to remediate many situations remotely from your device.
    For those situations where you are not able to fix an issue from the device, VMware vSphere Mobile Watchlist will enable you to share the VM and alert information along with any suggested KB articles and other web pages relevant to the current problem. Your colleagues back in the datacenter can use this context to resolve the issue.

      I’m sorry to say we don’t have plans at this time to create a Windows implementation. I hope you can try either the Android or iOS versions.

    I would like to second the request for the Windows Phone app. Now that Microsoft has a new guy in charge I hope they will integrate Windows Phones more with their computer operating system and it will be worth the effort to create an app for this platform. I understand it’s a lot of work tough.

    It’s not working for me. We have setup an external address for vCenter via NetScaler. But when I go to the app enter the external address, username/password, then it does not do anything. no error. I even reinstalled the app but no luck.. However, I can access my vCenter with the same external address w/o using the Watchlist App.

    I would like to wrap this app for distribution to both Android and iOS through XenMobile. Is it possible to download the ipa and apk as developer signed, so that I can re-sign them?
