ESX host visible to two vCenters

Is there such a thing as making an ESX host visible to two vcenter Servers? Is this possible without linking the two vCenter servers?

No, you have to use the Linked Mode option.

One host can be managed only by one vCenter Server.

When you add to another, it will be automatically removed to the first.

But other tools (for example Veeam Monitor, for monitoring purpose) can manage more vCenter Server or more hosts...

OK thanks - so you mean that with third party tools, I might be able to have a single ESX host accessible and manageable by more than one management piece at the same time?
