Hi Vernon,
How about using the COMMENT: tag in bb-hosts?
I use this for a number of this like adding the URL for a Dell RAC, or
differeniating between
ESX server and the Service Console.
X.X.X.X    esx01             # noconn
X.X.X.X    esx01             # testip COMMENT:"Serv Con"
would give this on the web page
esx01                    *    *    *
esx01 (Serv Con)     *    *    *

Hi all
Is there a way to indent a host in the hobbit view?
I want to list my physical host in the standard view, followed by the
hosted virtual zones (Solaris 10 here) after it.
But I want a way to see at a glance which are physical and which are
I was thinking a display that looked something like this
HostA                   *       *       * 
        VHost1          *       *       * 
        VHost2          *       *       *
HostB                   *        *       *
        VHost3          *       *       * 
        VHost4          *       *       * 
Is there a way of doing this?
If not, can I add this as a feature request?
Maybe an indent keyword in the bb-hosts tags?
Possibly even take it a step further, and add indent[index] to allow for
further indents of more than one tab?
