I want to be able to monitor VMWare exactly like the product says: https://www.paessler.com/vmware_monitoring

I add my vCenter server 6.0 (Windows 2008 R2 server) and under CREDENTIALS FOR VMWARE/XENSERVER I enter my domain user and password that is able to log into the vSphere web and thick clients..

I try with both the domain\username and just the username but neither discover anything other then just that server info (no hosts, no datastores, no vms, etc)..

Can someone assist please?

Thanks

Hello tscott,

I'm not sure if I understand your question right.

For adding a sensor to PRTG you can have a look in this manual Add a Sensor to PRTG.

Otherwise if you struggle to select the correct sensors, following sensors are supported for VMWare:

Hope this helps.

Best regards,

Eugen

Thanks for the reply..

I'm saying when I add my vCenter server, it doesn't discover anything automatically.. No ESXI hosts etc.. I thought the autodiscovery should do this?

Hello tscott,

You can check out the PRTG manual for in-depth explanation of the autodiscovery functionality: PRTG Manual Auto Discovery
If you've added your vcenter server as device, you could run the recommended sensors option described here.

Furthermore for your setup described in your other ticket. You could create device templates like described here and use them for your ESXi servers instead of your vcenter server only.

Hope this helps,

Eugen
