Data Object Description

This data object type describes the runtime state of a host.


Name Type Description

The time when the host was booted.

The host connection state. See the description in the enums for the ConnectionState data object type.

Crypto Key used for coredump encryption

Since vSphere API 6.5

Encryption state of the host. Valid values are enumerated by the CryptoState type.

Since vSphere API 6.5

The availability state of an active host in a vSphere HA enabled cluster. A host is inactive if it is in maintenance or standby mode, or it has been disconnected from vCenter Server. The active hosts in a cluster form a vSphere HA fault domain.

The property is unset if vSphere HA is disabled, the host is in maintenance or standby mode, or the host is disconnected from vCenter Server. The property is set to hostDown if the host has crashed.

Since vSphere API 5.0

Available system health status

Since VI API 2.5

The maximum theoretical virtual disk capacity supported by this host

Since vSphere API 5.5

The flag to indicate whether or not the host is in maintenance mode. This flag is set when the host has entered the maintenance mode. It is not set during the entering phase of maintenance mode.
See EnterMaintenanceMode_Task
See ExitMaintenanceMode_Task


The flag to indicate whether or not the host is in quarantine mode. InfraUpdateHa will recommend to set this flag based on the HealthUpdates received by the HealthUpdateProviders configured for the cluster. A host that is reported as degraded will be recommended to enter quarantine mode, while a host that is reported as healthy will be recommended to exit quarantine mode. Execution of these recommended actions will set this flag. Hosts in quarantine mode will be avoided by vSphere DRS as long as the increased consolidation in the cluster does not negatively affect VM performance.

Since vSphere API 6.5

This property is for getting network related runtime info

Since vSphere API 5.5

The host power state. See the description in the enums for the PowerState data object type.

Since VI API 2.5

The host's standby mode. For valid values see HostStandbyMode. The property is only populated by vCenter server. If queried directly from a ESX host, the property is is unset.

Since vSphere API 4.1

Host persistent state encryption information.

Since vSphere API

Indicating the host is ready for NVDS to VDS migration. See StatelessNvdsMigrationState for supported values.

Since vSphere API

Deprecated. As of

The array of PCR digest values stored in the TPM device since the last host boot time.

Since vSphere API 4.0

Runtime information of vFlash resource of the host.

Since vSphere API 5.5
