    Polling VMware environments

    mdriskell

      So I have I have very little experience with VMware environmnents (and by little I mean 0).  I am setting up Solarwinds at my new employer who relies heavily on VMware.  Per our security policies I will need to setup a request for credentials for me to poll these devices.

      When I look at the VMware section of adding a node it says

      vCenter or ESX credentials

      Which do I need?  Also is there a specific level of rights that's required to monitor the VM states?  I need to assure I put in the request correctly to help prevent it from coming back to me.

      Thanks,
