management options of ESX3i with HP mgmt agents

Hello

I have donwloaded and installed the ESX 3i with the HP management stuff includede and wonder why I do not have access to the HP system management homepage of the server. I also have no snmp interface to query the server health and such things. Is this ESX3i version ony usable with the HP System Insight Manager or do I miss something here ?

What I would like to look at is adding the hardware monitoring of the ESX3i wo a existing Nagios installation that uses snmp to do this.

ESXi does not have any SNMP query ability, even with OEM management agents installed. Most, if not all, of the available OEM management agents are CIM-based and do not include SNMP support. ESXi has the ability to send SNMP traps but does not provide SNMP queries.
