Setting up for monitoring vSphere 6.0

  • 1.  Setting up for monitoring vSphere 6.0

    Hello,

    We are hitting a wall getting our vSphere monitoring to model.

    Specifically, I believe the issue may be around these parameters.   Does anyone have some experience?

    zVSphereEndpointHost – where should this actually point? 'Hostname or IP used to connect to vSphere Endpoint'  - we have the server listed

    zVSphereEndpointUser – which kind of account should I use?  'User used to connect to vSphere Endpoint' – we entered one of our own accounts

    Thanks

    Are you using the ZenPacks.zenoss.vSphere ZenPack?

    If so, the endpoint should be the IP (or hostname if resolvable) of the vSphere Center (Or ESX host if a stand alone)

    User can be a read-only, as long as it has access to the API, metrics and can see everything

    Hi Jay,

    We have tried many iterations and don't seem to have much luck.   We are working with 2nd level support and I will post the resolution here.
