I want to setup multiple vCenter devices for the same vCenter server using different credentials that are only allow to see a part of the whole vCenter setup (e.g. one sensor for european VMs and one for asian VMs).
I arranged my vCenter in folders below the vCenter root: EMEA and APAC, I assigned Admin rights to EMEA to the EMEA admin. I want to add a vCenter device to PRTG logging into ESX as EMEA Admin, but I get errors "No channel" (Permission to perform this operation was denied.)
It seems I did not define the authorizations in vmware correctly: With my main admin I can add a device which shows all (> 500) vCenter sensors, with a "subadmin" I get the error messages on VMs and host. What do I have to add to ESX to be able to monitor only a part of the vCenter?
