I want to monitor a vCenter (and the “connected” ESXi hosts and VMs). The datasource rule “Check state of VMWare ESX via vSphere” lets me select a query type.
I chose “Queried host is a vCenter” and eveything works fine. But I can also pick “Queried host is a vCenter with Check_MK Agent installed”:
This makes me wonder how I would install the Check_MK agent on a vCenter? Has anyone done that?
Another question: If I select “Queried host is a host system”, what does that mean? Does it refer to one of the ESXi hosts?
