VMware Vcenter Monitoring



I have a sensor on a VM that is on an ESXi host monitored by the Vcenter plugin. It is giving me a message "The object 'vim.VirtualMachine:vm-3786' has already been deleted or has not been completely created". The VM is fine and I cannot get the message to clear. I seem to get this frequently

Hello ccbrownkc,

Thank you very much for the contact.

What version of PRTG are you currently running and what's the result after re-creating the sensor? Did you make sure to deploy the sensor to the vCenter server (as parent device) and not a specific ESX server?

Best regards,
