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,
