How to verify DPM functionality

After enabling and running vSphere DPM, you can verify that it is functioning properly by viewing each host’s Last Time Exited Standby information displayed on the Host Options page in the cluster Settings dialog box and on the Hosts tab for each cluster. This field shows a timestamp and whether vCenter Server Succeeded or Failed the last time it attempted to bring the host out of standby mode. If no such attempt has been made, the field displays Never as shown by orange color below
