From this VM can you ping one of the devices in question? Could it be that your VMNIC is not configured correctly?

Hello,
No, I don't.
Also, I have allowed SNMP comunitcation for IP of this VM.
I could see list devices which dicovered by FindIT Probe. But, I could not see option how to add to group or discover.

The user documentation states that "Once working credentials are provided, the Probe will discover the network and generate a Topology map."

Do you have the Manager piece of this puzzle also installed? The same document states "FindIT Network Manager is a distributed application which is comprised of two separate components or interfaces: one or more Probes referred to as FindIT Network Probe and a single Manager called FindIT Network Manager. An instance of FindIT Network Probe is installed at each site in the network, performs network discovery and communicates directly with each Cisco device. In a single site network, you may choose to run a standalone instance of FindIT Network Probe, but if your network comprises multiple sites, you may install FindIT Network Manager at a convenient location and associate each Probe with the Manager. From the Manager interface, you can get a high-level view of the status of all the sites in your network, and connect to the Probe installed at a particular site when you wish to view a detailed information for that site."

Hi netcmh,
As i known,
1) FindIT Network Probe (Probe) must install at each site to discovers and directly manages the network devices at that site.
2) FindIT Network Manager (Manager) will provides a summary view and alert for each site in the network as well as quickly discover the topology of a new network.
In my Scenarios, I has only 01 site. So, I have installed Probe only and the Probe could not discovers the network devices.
Follow up your idea, I just installed Manager to quickly discover. The result is Manager only recognized Probe without its network device insite.
==> I thinking, the problem is Probe discover process NOT Manager. (See photo as following).

I think I see the problem. This product is for inventorying Cisco 100 to 500 Series devices. You're attempting to inventory SANs and ESXis.

Might I suggest another product that would deal with your situation?

There are a few:

Icinga 2 https://www.icinga.org/
Nagios Core https://www.nagios.com/products/nagios-core/
Observium Community http://www.observium.org/
Zabbix http://www.zabbix.com/
Zenoss Core https://ownit.zenoss.com/get-started.html

I have personally tried Nagios and Zenoss, both have their pros and cons. My opinion - Spiceworks is the most stable, supported and usable.
