VMware hardware monitoring

We are running vmware ESX 4.0 on DL380 G5s.I would like to monitor the failure of a hard drive with vCenter. On the hardware status tab, there is no storage sensor (see attachment). I do have the hpmgmt-8.3.0-vmware4x agent installed. I have read documentation that says there should be storage sensors for the hard drive. Am I missing something? Thanks, Scott

Re: VMware hardware monitoring

Thanks for your response. I notice this is for ESXi. Will this also work on ESX servers?

Thanks,

Re: VMware hardware monitoring

Do you have your ESX updated with latest vmware patches? This should work then, I'll check our setup and let you know (bl685c's)

Or - use Hp management as monitoring tool.

Re: VMware hardware monitoring

I tried running the zip file with the command below, but it keeps erroring out.

vihostupdate.pl --server 10.150.1
.150 --install --bundle c:\hp-esxi4.0uX-bundle-1.1.zip

I read the install instructions and this should work. Is there another way to get this installed?

Thanks,
Scott
