You can view all the connected SCVMM management servers under SCVMM management servers in Azure Arc center.

In the inventory view, you can browse the virtual machines (VMs), VMM clouds, VM network, and VM templates. Under each inventory, you can select and enable one or more SCVMM resources in Azure to create an Azure resource representing your SCVMM resource.

You can further use the Azure resource to assign permissions or perform management operations.
