This monitor tracks the VMware System and Hardware Health Manager Service Health Alarm.
By default, the alarm is triggered by the following event:
|▪||vim.event.HealthStatusChangedEvent: Health status of the VMware System and Hardware Health Manager Service changed.|
Check that the VMware System and Hardware Health Manager Service can access data stored in vCenter Server databases, and that the configured service account has a permission to access host hardware information. Check vCenter logs for event details; for more information on troubleshooting with logs, see VMware vSphere Documentation.
