VMware inventory (no vcenter) - Cannot Scan Host machine

    Question

  • Hi

    I am having trouble getting MAP to scan a host vmware machine (ESXi 5.1). I have been through the forum and have tried the options. I can only connect from the MAP machine through the web.

    - All discovery methods tried

    - No vcenter, only direct connection

    - Managed Object Browser activated

    - certificate validation for port 443 turned off. Connecting through the web give the 'untrusted certificate' page which I can ignore (trust anyway). Port 443 confirmed as the connected port.

    - log on credentials work as connection confirmed through a browser.

    - virtual machines are being scanned.

    Have I missed another potential problem area in another thread? I am new to this and have been through several threads already. Apologies if this is a repeat but I believe I have tried everything.

    Any help is most appreciated.

    regards,

    Kigen
