I got this error when i add Esxi 6.7 update 3 host to PRTG server 17.1

Could not create the sensor VMware Virtual Machine (SOAP) on device

The underlying connection was closed: An unexpected error occurred on a send.

Please check the following resources: Requires .NET 4.0 or higher to be installed on the probe system. For this sensor type you must define credentials for VMware servers on the device you want to use the sensor on. Ensure you enter a user with sufficient access rights to obtain statistics (read-only usually works). We recommend that you use vCenter as parent device. When the monitored VM changes the host server via vMotion, PRTG can continue monitoring in this case. The sensor can monitor VMware ESXi server version 5.0, 5.1, 5.5, or 6.0. We recommend Windows 2012 R2 on the probe system for best performance of this sensor. For VMware virtual machines, disk usage channels are only available as of virtual hardware version 8. Knowledge Base: I cannot add VMware sensors because of "wrong" password although it is correct. What can I do? This sensor type can have a high impact on the performance of your monitoring system. Please use it with care! We recommend that you use not more than 50 sensors of this sensor type on each probe.

Hi there,

did you followed the steps mentioned in the error message? In addition, please note that this Sensor does not use SNMP.

Hi there,

Thank you for the information. Please try to add the Sensor in a up-to-date PRTG instance.
As a side note, we officially only support PRTG installations which are not older than one year.
