Automatic Dependency Creation for Host-VM Relationships in SolarWinds VMAN / HCO

Develop a feature in SolarWinds that automatically creates dependencies based on Host-VM relationships, thereby making VMs unreachable when the host is down. This will improve the accuracy of alerts and reduce false positives.

Automatic Dependency Mapping: VMAN already knows the relationships between hosts and their respective virtual machines (VMs). When a host goes down, the system will automatically mark all its dependent VMs as unreachable. This will prevent the system from sending false alerts about the VMs being down when it's actually the host that's down.
