Why do I need root credentials when monitoring VMware hosts via SSH?
Using the SSH VMWare ESX(i) Disk Sensor I want to monitor my vSphere VMware host via SSH.
The sensor only works when I enter the credentials of the root user in the parent device. With any other user credentials the sensor connection fails.
Why is this?
