Hi Daniel,

We monitor our VM servers with Nagios but point to their IP addresses in the 
hosts.cfg.  Since these don't change and Nagios doesn't care what VM host the 
server is running it is not a problem.  We make the network switch the parent, 
not the VMware host.

Subject: [Nagios-users] ESXi/vCenter Monitoring

Hello all,

I have a lot of host servers as VM's on our ESXi infrastructure, managed with 
vCenter.  We also use vSphere DRS to help keep the load on host systems 
balanced.  Due to the DRS, our VM's can sometimes move around from being on one 
host to being on another w/o my knowledge beforehand.  Does anyone know if 
there is any sort of plugin available for Nagios Core that would basically talk 
to my vCenter system and find out what VM's are on which hosts, and 
automatically update that VM's Parent directive in the host definition?
