Monitoring DL380G3 with HP version of ESXi 3.5

Hi,

I installed vmware (ESXi 3i u4 - HP version from VMw's site) on a DL380 G3 and plan on using the server as a web, database and file server. The machine will be co-located and so I need to remotely manage the unit and be informed if a hardware failure occurs.

I have struggled getting things to work and am most of the way there after having searched these forums extensively. However, I still have one issue. SIM recognizes the unit and the embedded VM, but it does not provide any hardware monitoring. I am trying to figure out whether this is a configuration error or related to the age of the hardware and am hoping that someone here can help.

When I perform a discovery in SIM, I get the following results:

Starting identification process...

I appear to be getting many SNMP errors, and am confused about where and how I configure that. I have explored iLO and VIC with no success. I have given SIM root credentials of the VMware server and so permissions should not be an issue. Attached is a screen shot of what SIM shows for the hardware.

If I choose health status on the screen shot, a new window opens with an error message: "Property Pages are unavailable for this managed system." Choosing aggregate health status shows the error log which reports either "System is reachable" or "System is unreachable".

I am frustrated right now and am not sure what to do next. Any guidance or commentary anyone can provide would be hugely appreciated.

TIA!

One more update, if I try to subscribe to the server's WBEM events, I get the following error:
