New here, first post. This process looks very straight forward but I have a few questions. Thank you for your patience. I have CheckMK up, running, and monitoring a windows host. My next step is to add a few VMs (vSphere 6.7) but I’m having a little trouble with the process. Any help is appreciated.
- You must have defined a user on the ESXi-server. It is sufficient that this user only has read access.*
I have a user setup but at what level to I apply those read only permissions? From root and propagate down? (I don’t want to apply these read only permissions at the wrong level unnecessarily)
- You must have defined the ESXi-server as the host in Checkmk, and configured it as an agent (Checkmk Agent). Tip: Select the host name so that it is the same as that known to the server itself.*
So when the read only account is completed, I just add the ESXi host/datacenter as a host in CheckMK?
Afterwards, if I want to see VMs as individual hosts I look inside “~/tmp/check_mk/piggyback/” to see all the names the system has data for and then create all the hosts using the names in the piggyback folder. Correct?

Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
