Where instance is:

{ id=value | name=value }

Description

This command shows information about an object. Use the list command to find all instances of an object type, then use the show command to show more detailed information about the object.

To display the output in alphabetical order, use the set AlphabetizeAttributes=Yes command. To show CLI session options set using the set command, use the showclisession command.

A Job object does not have a name attribute, only an id attribute. The show Job name=value command is the same as entering show Job id=value. You can use these two options interchangeably. Any name attributes are automatically converted to ids.

Options

The following table shows the available options for this command.

The object about which to show information.

Important

The Assembly, AssemblyVirtualDisk and AssemblyVm options have been deprecated. You should instead use VirtualAppliance, VirtualApplianceVirtualDisk, and VirtualApplianceVm, respectively.

{ id=value | name=value }

The instance of the object using either the id or name option, for example name=MyServer.

Examples

Example A.227 Showing details about an Oracle VM Server

OVM> show Server name=MyServer

Example A.228 Showing details about a virtual machine

OVM> show Vm name=MyVM

Example A.229 Showing details about a network

OVM> show Network id=0004fb0010ff705

Example A.230 Showing details about a VNIC

OVM> show Vnic name=00:21:f6:00:00:0b

Using the show Vnic command can provide you with information such as the virtual machine that is using a particular VNIC, as well as the IP addresses that are configured for that VNIC.

Note

IP addresses are only displayed for VNICs attached to virtual machines that have been properly set up with the Oracle VM Guest Additions packages. See the Oracle VM Administrator's Guide for information on using the Oracle VM Guest Additions packages.
