Monitoring VMware ESXi 5.1 with latest Zabbix 2.2 on CentOS 6.4

Hi,

I am having hard time Monitoring VMware ESXi 5.1 with latest Zabbix 2.2 on CentOS 6.4.
So far, i've installed all prerequisites and zabbix  using the following:

./configure --enable-server --enable-agent --with-mysql --with-net-snmp --with-libcurl --with-libxml2 --with-openipmi

Zabbix is now running he's able to monitor itself and Windows system but i can't get ESXi 5.1 monitoring up.

Vmware ESX5.1 has a full enterprise license and SSH has been configured as well.

On zabbix, the VMware Host has been added and configured with proper MACRO(URL, USER and PASSWORD) and vmware templates are also linked.

When i try to see zabbix latest data for my ESX Host, i get the error:
Cannot complete login due to an incorrect user name or password.

Anyone had success using this setup?
Any suggestions or comment?

Thanks in advance,

Is SNMP configure on the host and is the firewall open for the SNMP service?

Hi, we figure out, for the host name we need to specify the UUID for VMware ESXi

in zabbix, host configuration, the computer name, not the visible name and without quotes

thanks, but if I understand that correctly this is only required in case you point zabbix to the ESXi host directly instead of pointing to the vcenter correct?


I see a lot of vmware_service_get_vm_stats and vmware_service_create_vm() functions in the zabbix-server.log but I do see nothing on the GUI...
