VMware Data Store sensor not cleared




We have PRTG on out environment, I'm tring to monitor VMware DataStore and the channels is not perfectly clear to me.

There is a channel called "Accessible" does it mean accessible to the ESXi? because even if I disconnect the data store from the VMware ESXi it do not alert that it dont accessible...

I tried add the sensor to VMware VCenter and to ESXi, them both does not alert when im disconnect data store on porpse

Thank you for your message.

The accessibility channel is based on the value returned by the "DatastoreSummary" object whose documentation is right here.

Kind regards.
