ESXi 4 Hardware monitoring
Posted on 2010-11-09
What is the best way to go about and enable some type of HW monitoring in ESXi 4. The virtual machine running Windows Server 2008 doesn't have direct access to the hardware so that leaves to use th VSphere client info located Configuration / Health Status. How reliable is that? Is ESXi able to work with any hardware and accurately report on drive, array memory issues? Most our servers are DELL. Can this be automated to have those errors emaild outside the host? Are there any third-party application that can do that? Does the Event section log HW issues?
Please let me know because right now we're in dark not knowing if our remote ESXi servers have HW issues
