Monitor vCenter



I am trying to monitor our vCenter server. I am able to add the device, so that authentication works. However when I try to add a Virtual Machine, I receive the following error.

Sorry, the scan for available monitoring items has failed! Error Message:"HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found"

Any ideas why? I have tried HTTP/HTTPS, and a bunch of different combinations.

do you provide the domain credentials in the device settings under VMWare/XEN credentials? Please use "VMware Virtual Machine (SOAP)" sensors for the VMs.

with kind regards
