    Hello everyone,

    We have four ESX hosts in our company. I want to monitor them in SolarWinds v.9.1. I downloaded and installed the free tool VM Monitor for SolarWinds.
    I have enabled the SNMP under Security Profiles, Firewall Properties. What else do I have to do to be able to monitor the hosts?

    Thank you.

    Kind Regards,

    Are you using VirtualCenter? There’s SNMP configuration in there you can leverage for all managed hosts/VMs.

    Hello jasonboche,

    Thank you for the reply.

    We do have VirtualCenter v.2.5.0. I want to configure the ESX hosts with a community string, and to configure it if possible like configuring a Windows client with the SNMP service (string, and IP).

    Is this possible from the Management Server Configuration utility?

    Thank you.

    Regards

    Did you read the link I posted above where David Davis explains how to configure SNMP on an ESX host?
