The Veeam VMware Advanced ESXi Hardware Monitoring (CIM-based) MP supplements the Veeam VMware High-Granularity MP and includes collection rules that allow you to monitor state of host hardware sensors.
After you import the Veeam.Virt.Extensions.VMware.Monitoring.Hardware.xml and Veeam.Virt.Extensions.VMware.Monitoring.HighGranularity.xml, you will also need to enable CIM-based hardware monitoring:
|1.||Assign the CIM interaction privilege. The CIM interaction privilege is required for collecting hardware sensor data using CIM over XML from vSphere hosts directly.|
To assign CIM interaction to the user role, edit the role settings, go to All Privileges > Host > CIM and enable CIM interaction.
The firewalls on vSphere hosts by default allow incoming connections on port 5989 for CIM data collection.
|2.||Configure Collector settings in Veeam UI:|
|a.||Open Veeam UI and switch to the Veeam Collectors tab.|
|b.||In the Configuration section, select Collector Settings.|
|c.||In the Collector Settings window, set the HardwareSensors value to True.|
