I’m trying to monitor a small vSphere cluster.
I’ve created three hosts in checkmk for the ESXi hosts, and configured the vsphere special agent (“host”) mode for them. This works great.
I’ve also created a cluster in checkmk, with the three hosts as members. I’ve given it the IP of the vcenter and again configured the vsphere special agent for it, this time in “vcenter” mode.
However, I can’t get this to work: the discovery doesn’t find any services.
It does work when configured for a normal host, instead of a cluster – but the idea was that the vCenter can’t be queried when all its ESXi hosts are down. It’s like the special agent isn’t run for a cluster, even though it has an IP and is set to run only the configured special agents.
What am I doing wrong?
