ESX Server & VMWare VCenter v5

I am monitoring a number of VMWare servers, with ESX & VMWare sensors. These have been working well.

Last night, both environments were upgraded to v5 (vSphere 5 & ESXi 5), and now the sensors are unable to get any information - they all report as down/not found/no data.

I can see no setting within the sensors to stipulate v4 or v5, so how can I get these working again?

Thanks Ian

We will release an update for PRTG with VMware 5 support in January. It's already working in our lab, we just need some testing.

Will this be supported in the upcoming version 9 release?

I'm very much afraid not in the initial release of PRTG 9, likely later on in another PRTG 9 release though.

:=(. Great^^......so I've got now abot 100 virtual machines that I can't monitor with PRTG over the VMware Sensors.

That's not good, also VMWare has announced this upgrade....it's nothing new.

Hi,

same problem here!! Is there any update scheduled yet? If there isn't any update available within the next two months, I'm afraid we need to change our monitoring tool.

cheers, André

As of version 9.1 PRTG does not offer monitoring of VMware 5.0 systems. We are working on that, but we can not give you an ETA yet. I understand that not everybody is happy about this, but this is the situation right now.

I'm in the same boat. Let me know when a version comes out that works with vCenter 5.

Any update on this feature/functionality? Asking as we are holding back our vCenter 5/vSphere 5 upgrade until this functionality is available in PRTG9...

Any news? I would hope that vSphere 5 support would be one of the top priorities for this software. I notice that you are a member of the VMware Technology Alliance. I assume you were privy to the early releases of version 5?

This is a huge problem and any update besides "no update yet" would be helpful. What is your roadmap? What are the issues?

Any update on this yet? This is a huge problem for us, and it is forcing us to look in other monitoring directions. In the future, this sort of major change should be more prominently documented in the release notes.
