    Monitoring ESXi 4 servers with Dell IT Assistant

    D1059 Lurker



      I'm new to VMWare and ESXi. We have some new Dell R710's delivered with ESXi 4 pre-installed on SD card so I assume they have Dell OpenManage agents installed as well. We are using the free licensed version of ESXi. We have enabled access via SSH.


      Can anyone give us definitive instructions on how to monitor free ESXi 4 servers using Dell IT Assistant. At the moment they are appearing as unknown status.


      After much searching I have found various articles on enabling SNMP, but none seem to have a full explanation on how to get IT Assistant to recognise free ESXi servers. I also found reference to a Dell Manual - Dell OpenManage Server Administrator Installation Guide for VMware ESXi but this appears to be unavailable via the Dell website (page not found).
