Could you please help me with this one.
My ESXi 5.0 servers are not showing properly (have grey question marks next to them), although they are in the VMware ESX Servers container and I can see some details, but not all. I have followed “Configure_ESXi5_For_OME” guide and made all required settings. I also ran this command “vicfg-snmp.pl --username root --password <yourpassword> --server <yourserver> --hwsrc sensors” to change the source to sensors. The servers are still not showing properly.
- When I was setting the notification target on ESXi servers I used port 162, is that correct? (I did not change the port on OME server)
- Account for WS-Man, I specify the root credentials for ESXi servers, is this correct?
All ESXi servers are running ESXi 5.0.0 623860. All servers have OMSA 7.0 installed. The ESXi servers and the OME server are in the same VLAN and all ports are open.
Have just ran Troubleshooting and WS-Man is showing Ok. But the ESXi servers are still not showing properly.
Also tried disabling SNMP discovery from the range, as soon as SNMP was unticked the ESX servers moved from
"VMware ESX Servers" to "Unknown" container.
Can you tell me a bit about how you filled in the discovery wizard page that is used for the wsman protocol? (secure mode, etc.)
Here you go:
Can you try to bump the timeout value to 10 and see if that helps?
Thanks Rob, that did the trick.
I understand it is because of the OMSA response time. Any way to improve this?
The hardware log is not showing: Could not connect to device to obtain logs" is it an expected behaviour?
No way to improve it at the moment....workin' on it though on our side :)
Pretty sure we just get h/w logs via SNMP in 1.0.1. If you have any servers discovered via SNMP, you might do a sanity check to see that you are seeing these logs.
Sorry, just to clarify: No hardware log is available for ESXi servers at the moment at they use WS-MAN and not SNMP, is that correct?
If yes, any ETA on the SNMP support for ESXi?
It is difficult to specify the exact release date. As Rob mentioned in his post, we are looking at supporting hardware logs from ESXi for the next release. Currently it is planned for Q3/Q4 this year.
