Refreshing virtual machine information

You must refresh your virtual machine information when VMware vCenter credentials change or the database host restarts.

About this task

RDM-based disks are managed by the SnapCenter Plug-in for Microsoft Windows, which is installed on the database host. To manage RDMs, the SnapCenter Plug-in for Microsoft Windows communicates with the vCenter server that manages the database host.
