iLO3 "management agents" for ESXi???

Joel had a question regarding ESXi and iLO3:

 

*****************

 

Had a meeting with a customer this afternoon discussing monitoring their HP BL465c G7 ESXi servers with SIM.

 

They assured me they are using the HP ESXi ISO but were supposedly told several months ago that they would have to wait for the “management agents” to be added into their iLO3’s before they would have complete management of their ESXi servers.

 

If anyone can indicate when/if this capability will be available for iLO3 – or help me clarify that G7 servers running the HP ESXi image have all the required management capabilities – I’d appreciate it.

Who told them they needed agents?

ESXi is based on WBEM and the HP image includes our WBEM providers along with additional drivers and NMI handlers.

If they need proof, install vanilla ESXi and the HP ESXi version side by side and look at the details and you should see more details around hardware and alerting.

Any other help for Joel?
