The VMware ESXi adapter fetches information about virtual devices and ESX hosts through the VCenter HTTP API.
The VMware ESXi adapter connection requires the following parameters:

  1. Host – host name of the vCenter panel.
  2. User Name and Password - A user with read-only rights to the panel. It is recommended to test the user’s credentials in the VCenter panel before using them in the adapter.
  3. Verify SSL – Choose whether to verify the SSL certificate of the server.
  4. Choose Instance - If you are using multi-nodes, choose the Axonius node that is integrated with the adapter. By default, the 'Master' Axonius node (instance) is used. For details, see Connecting Additional Axonius Nodes
