After the upgrade of vCenter the "esxservervmserver" sensors stopped working



I'm running PRTG version I have upgraded my vCenter from version 6.5x to 7.0.0d and subsequently the majority of "esxservervmserver" sensors stopped working with error message "Input string was not in a correct format". The only sensors which are working correctly are: the sensor for vCenter VM itself and the sensors for VMs which are in Power off state. Also the "vmwaredatastoreexternsensor" and "esxserverhosthealthsensor" are working correctly. I have tried the Auto Discovery but it didn't solved the issue. Thanks for any advice

This issue might be related to a older bug that was present in the PRTG version that you are using. I would recommend that you update to the version or newer, since the issue is fixed since this version. For more information, I would suggest that you see our Release Notes.

Kind regards,
