Re: ESX/i Host Discover



To put it simply , the ESX/i servers Discovery process is like below :

  1. configure the credentials and permissions
  2. install VMware Infrastructure SDK to Probe
  3. run Host Connection by Shell/WMI jobs to discover host
  4. run Host Applications by Shell/WMI jobs to discover process
  5. run specific VIM/CIM jobs according to your credentials


For details you can check Chapter 16: VMware Infrastructure Discovery of Discovery and Integrations Content Guide – Discovery Modules .

Re: ESX/i Host Discover

Running the VMware vCenter Topology by VIM discovery job on the virtual center is quicker to discover ESX/i hosts than running the specific ESX discovery jobs since VM admins may be apprehensive to give discovery access to the ESX/i hosts themselves versus http/https to the virtual center
