It seems to me that ESXi 5.5 hosts can be monitored only though agentless (licensed) feature of Dell Management Pack through SMASH device monitoring - is this correct or have I missed something?
With best regards
Sorry, I am just now seeing this post. Yes, this is correct. ESXi hosts can only be monitored through Agent-Free monitoring, which does require the additional license. Dell Server MP Suite 6.2 is the latest version available.
Windows hosts can be monitored either Agent-Based or Agent-Free.
