Viewing Information About a vCenter Server

When you select a vCenter Server in the Virtual Inventory list, information about that vCenter Server is displayed in a header area and in two panes. Both panes display unique information and provide unique functionality. The two panes are interrelated—the information presented in the bottom pane is dependent on what is selected in the top pane. This "top down" approach means you use the top pane to view overview information about the hypervisors being managed by the vCenter server, and you use the bottom pane to drill down to more detailed information about specific hypervisors.
