Overview

This article describes how to troubleshoot the ESX Hardware Monitoring. The ESX server returns the following message:

Resolution

 

When an ESX server returns the message, Unable to connect to remote server, check the following:

  • Ensure CIM is enabled on the ESX server. To enable CIM on ESX/ESXi, refer to Hardware Monitoring and VMware.
  • Ensure that port 5989 is opened on the firewall.

If the ESX server returns the message, Unable to establish session with all provided credentials, check the following:

  • Verify the VMware credentials in the VIM are correct.
  • Verify the account belongs to the root user group.
