If you install the HP OEM version of ESXi, you'll have the HP agents pre-installed and you can use HP Systems Insight Manager for FREE.

You do not mention free or if you have a budget to purchase.

Thanck for your reply, but if this question is for dell server we haven't need other software. Is possible to install the OpenManage Offline Bundle and VIB for ESXi : file name OM-SrvAdmin-Dell-Web-6.4.0-1266.VIB-ESX40i_A00.6.zip, and on a PC client the Open Manage server version 6.4. What about HP server? There is the same way for monitoring whit HP Tools?

Yes, you manage Dell Servers with Dell OpenManage and HP Servers with HP Systems Insight Manager, if you've not installed the HP OEM version of ESXi, you'll also need to add and download the CIM providers.

What HP Server do you have?

Once you have added the CIM providers update for your ESXi server, you'll be able to monitor the hardware from within the vSphere GUI Client using Hardware Status, if you require more monitoring you use HP Systems Insight Manager.
