Determining the OS Type for a Virtual Machine

Looking over V1, v2 and v0, I have not found a way to determine the OS type of a virtual machine.

 

If that is possible, how would one do this?

 

If this is not currently possible, can we add some field to the API that accounts for OS system.

This is important for us to be able to auto-discover those devices when we monitor them, then accurately model those VM's OS's ..

 

Thanks.

Currently "OS Type" is only available for ESXi VMs

Please open a ticket to add this functionality. I'd like to keep this ticket open until we either have an enhancement ticket is create or that feature is added.
