Click Add Monitor(s). This discovers the VMware ESX/ESXi server from the network and starts monitoring it.
Supported Versions of VMware ESX/ESXi Servers: ESX 3.5 and above; ESXi 3 and above.
In order to add VMWare ESX/ESXi servers for monitoring, we recommend to use the root account. However, in case you are unable to use the root account, you can use a 'view-only' profile to add the servers. This profile has enough rights to be used for monitoring. The user you create must be:
a member of the group user
based on the profile 'read only'
