Veeam Monitor and Virtual Center Error connection.

Post by alexrogi »

Hi!..

So far, Veeam Monitor works fine with all my ESXi hosts.
Now, I need to configure my VMware servers on Windows hosts.
For that, I have Virtual Center 1.0.4 checking the windows hosts servers where I have VMWare servers VM.

How can I configure the Virtual Center 1.0.4 on Veeam Monitor?.. I alredy configured as:
* Add VC
* then type the user/pass and changed the port to 905 (used by default)

When I click ok, takes about 3 min and says:
"Error Message: The underlying connection was closed. An unexpected error ocurred on a send"

Any ideas?

Well, after a little research, found that Veeam monitor is actually using the web port to connect to Virtual Center.

So, the port to use is not 905, is the one used to VMware Web Service port.
For VirtualCenter 1.x, the default port number is 8443 and for Virtual Center. 2.x and ESX Server 3.x, the default port number is 443.

But still, does not work.

Hello, unfortunately only vCenter 2.x or later is supported according to the product's System Requirements:

:(

Ok, lets try this:
Forget the Virtual Center and use each of the VMWare servers directly?..
Use the VMware web-based interface (called the MUI) in each VMWare server instead of using the Virtual Center centralized?..

Any chance?..

A mix of them, but mostly:
VMWare 1.0.4-56528 and 1.0.6-91891

Any chance?.... :?:

No, unfortunately you can only add 2.x to Veeam Monitor.

Tried and work sucesfully with VMWare Server 2.0.2!!..

Just remember, when add VMWare servers, add them as ESXI, use your Domain\account with admin rights, put Password and use port 8333

So, we will have to move to VMWare Server 2.0.2 and ESXI, (both free) and drop Virtual Center (at least for monitoring VM).

Correct, Server 2.x works fine, just a few metrics unavailable...
I've used it to monitor my own lab back when I had it running on VMware Server 2.0
