Chapter 17. VMware Networking Switches
After adding a VMware provider, Red Hat CloudForms automatically discovers all vSphere distributed switches (vDS) on that provider and collects the information in the Red Hat CloudForms inventory.
Navigate to Compute → Infrastructure → Networking to see a list of all VMware switches, along with information including Name, Ports, and UUID. Switches and port groups are listed by provider, then cluster on the sidebar.
Click on a switch to view its summary page, which displays relationships with hosts, and any tags.

- Navigate to Compute → Infrastructure → Networking.
- Select the switches to tag.
Click (Policy), and then (Edit Tags).

- Select more tags or click Save to apply the tags.
