Re: problems with the registration of the host ESX.

Have you executed the following tasks before you initiated the "VMM Agent Deployment" task? -

1. Run "mxagentconfig" tool on the target host.
2. Synchronize the time between ESX Host and SIM (CMS).

The following are a couple of links which might be helpful -
Secure Shell (SSH) in HP SIM 5.x (has info about running the "mxagentconfig" command) --> http://h10018.www1.hp.com/wwsolutions/misc/hpsim-helpfiles/hpsim_5_ssh.pdf

Re: problems with the registration of the host ESX.

For completeness, the syntax you need to use is

mxagentconfig -a -n -u -p
