Managing and monitoring ESXi devices

About VMware ESXi

VMware ESXi (also known as VMware vSphere Hypervisor) is a purpose-built hypervisor operating system that runs on bare metal and incorporates VMware’s virtualization technologies. ESXi can be configured to manage virtual machines that run within the ESXi core and that are monitored by it. Virtual machines running on an ESXi server will be allocated a share of the resources of the host system. Also see A note on Subscription.

The ESXi hypervisor operating system does not permit application installation per se, making installation of the Datto RMM Agent impossible. Servers running ESXi must therefore be managed as network devices, facilitating the use of Network Nodes for device discovery, monitoring and management.
