This article describes how to decrease the amount of sockets by excluding ESX hosts from monitoring.

This can be used when you have exceeded the socket count for license entitlement in VMan.


All VMan versions where the data source is at VMWare vCenter


  1. Open vCenter.
  2. Expand the Host & Clusters until you locate the host you want to exclude.
  3. Right click the host, and then click Add Permission.
  4. Add the user that will do the SolarWinds Virtualization Manager data collection.
  5. Assign a No Access role and this will exclude the selected Host from monitoring and data collection.
