I also have my doubts if we should include VM's on our CMDB. A lot of users will now have VMs (with a recent change) but I dont see the use of including them as CI's ...as of yet.

A server is a CI whether it is a virtual server or a physical server

If you are using Virtualization for systesm that are part of a service then you need to have them in your asset register / cmdb

You need to have the physical device.
You need to have the software services and applications
You need to have the virtual servers

If the virtual server has an IP address, host name, performs a function, then it is as real as a real physicial server as far as providing service

You need to have the V-server in the system so that you can track faults with the service that is being provided
