Is it possible to monitor ESX 3.5 hosts & VM's from within Solarwinds Orion NPM 9.1 or is this done via the free download?
I'd appreciate details on what can be monitored and how this is achieved.

Thanks!

To monitor ESX Hosts and VMs you need to download the free add-on to NPM.

As well to the above.
Will need to edit the SNMPD file so the Solarwinds server can SNMP the ESX host.

Hi,

You need to download the VMMonitor from the SolarWinds site.
