If your VMware ESX hosts are controlled by VMware vCenter servers, SolarWinds Orion obtains the status of the ESX hosts from the vCenter server.

To poll the ESX servers directly, change the Poll Through setting of the ESX host.

  1. Log in to the Orion Web Console as an administrator.
  2. Navigate to Settings through Settings > All Settings in the menu bar.
  3. In the Product-Specific Settings grouping, click Virtualization Settings > VMware Settings.
  4. Point to any column heading, click the drop-down arrow, and then click Columns > Polling Through.
  5. Select the ESX hosts you want to poll directly.
  6. Click Poll Through > Poll ESX server directly.

On the VMWare Settings page, you can also disable and enable polling for ESX hosts and vCenter servers.
