Monitoring Free with ESXi 5.1 free hosts

We have a few ESXi 5.1 free hosts and I have setup Veeam One monitor in free mode for now. After seeing the web reporting feature I am very impressed, etc.

First question:
Did I miss anything? Can you use free ESXi with free Veeam One Monitor?

Second, my issue is that in two separate instances, the Veeam One Monitor appears to make VMs lose connection temporarily, cause MKS errors when connecting to VM consoles, and occasionally I will see issues with the graphing. It will stop reporting and no more data is able to come through and at the same time I am unable to connect to any VM console and throws the MKS error. I looked through the logs and found something called TPM driver. Is this able to be used with free esxi? Does Veeam One have an option to not collect data via this driver? It appears the hostd crashes after this attempt...

Yes, absolutely. Veeam ONE fully supports free hypervisors from VMware and Microsoft.

Please contact our support team directly for further assistance, as debug logs review is required here.
