ILMT doesn’t support enabeled HyperV (Feature) in a VMware virtualization

We have a VMware environment with windows server. Until now ILMT had displayed the correct usage – full (physical) capacity of the server.

For some virtual VMWare Microsoft servers we have now enabled Hyper-V features (ILMT defines this as nested virtualisation). But in reality the virtual environment of our servers is a native VMWare Virtualization with an Microsoft Operation System on the VMs. None Hyper V servers, only the possibility to use Hyper-V features is enabled at our VMWare Servers.

For the virtual servers with enabled Hyper-V features, the hardware inventory in ILMT doesn‘t show VM Manager data. The "Status = OK" and the ID of the server is like "TLM_VM ....".

ILMT uses for these virtual Servers the PVU standard counting of 100 PVU per Core in opposite to the right messure of 70 PVU per Core. And it seams that it counts every server with enabled HyperV Feature additiv to the full capicity of the physical ESX-Host. As a result ILMT shows a much higher PVU consumption.

We have opened a PMR. No solution was available, because this virtualisation scenario is not supported by ILMT. The workaround doesn´t work for us, because in near future we will have all our VMWare VMs with enabeled Hyper-V feature, and we will have a huge manuell effort.

So we expect that ILMT counts the correct PVU-consumption again in the next release automatically.
