IBM Director: How do I monitor ESXi on a IBM stand alone server?

We are configuring chaises and blade to be monitored and searched using IBM Director 5.20 running on Linux machine.
We are able to access IBM Director Console where we can add IBM Blade chaises and blade server on it, so that we can locate them easily.
But it is not allowing us to add stand alone server like IBM X3850 X5, so that further we can monitor hardware issues and if same can be searched using IBM director’s search console which will automatically redirect us to RSA.

Would be great if any one please guide like how we can get it configured on standalone Boxes running on Esxi 4.x and 5.x
Any best practice doc to be followed to configure IBM director for Hardware and OS monitoring.

Thanks.

Director is free for blades only. Once past 30-60-90 days of initial trial you cannot add standalone servers.
Upward integration (xseries hardware page improvement in vcenter) is also commercial product.
Probably wait a bit if Lenovo takes over and hope they give it away for free...

If it's not a plug-in than it is NOT supported in ESXi hypervisor.
