DL380 G7 no sensor data vCenter (esxi 6.0)

Got an exsi 6.0 installation on a couple of DL380 G7 servers using the HP ISO image (VMware-ESXi-6.0.0-Update3-5224934-HPE-600. as per my post on the VMware forum (  and I am not getting any sensor data displayed in the vCenter console.  Data is displayed in the vSphere client (non-web).

I though iLO might have been an issue, so upgraded from 1.86 to 1.88.  I updated one of the VIBs (two were already current) from here: and that changed nothing.  iLO shows sensor data perfectly but that doesn't help me in vCenter.  The BIOS is also current, P67

Is it a CIM that needs updating or another HPE driver, a setting in the BIOS or iLO?

I have read heaps about other people with similar issues, most of them lead nowhere, others mention making changes to vCenter - I am using the appliance.

Does anyone have any advice or information that can help.  I would like to get this resolved before putting it into production.
