The Hardware health events report undefined status for both ESX hosts and Windows Servers. The following error occurs:
Hardware health monitoring is undefined.
All SAM versions
The problem is in the validation of certificates for https communication. Validating an entire certification chain takes longer than the default of 15 seconds leading to communication being terminated, resulting in the above error.
The workaround is to increase the default timeout value to 120 seconds.
Note: This issue will be addressed in a future release.
