  • SolarWinds VM Monitor cannot monitor ESX 3.5

    Hello everyone,
    I'm new to this forum and need your help regarding setting up VM Monitor. I have read and followed the guidelines from David Davis on this link but it doesn't work. What I got is an error message saying Test tailed. responed to ping, but did not reply to this community string.

    I have typed the same community string as the one I set up for rocommunity on smnpd.conf.

    Please advice what I've missed here.

    Thanks in advance,

    VM Monitor does monitor ESX3.5... but only traps in the free version. What are you trying to monitor? Do you have the free or the paid? Assuming you are trying to monitor traps... Probably the most common issue is having the SNMP set up on the VM server incorrectly. If you are using the paid product, here are some directions on how to set up.
