Excluding certain ESXi hosts and VMFS datastore monitored by VMAN?

People,

How do I exclude the monitoring for some older ESXi servers & testing environment that is managed by using one VCenter server?

I need to add new production host to monitor by VMAN, but do not have the capacity to add additional VMAN CPU socket license.

Thanks in advance.

You have to edit the permissions of the service account so that it cannot see those hosts.

@mesverrum, thanks for the suggestion.

Will this method you suggested above not counting towards the VMAN CPU sockets?

This document explains the idea of it, instead of a VM you'd be removing access to hosts.
