Howdy) Got a trouble and realy need your help..
Have Vcenter server 5.0.0 and ESX 4.1.0
For vcenter everything works fine BUT unable to get plugin working with ESX host with non-root user
[root@sysmanage1 plugins]# ./check_vmware.pl --username=nagios --password=XXXXXXXX --server=10.237.195.175 --mode=nagios --report=memory
UNKNOWN: Login to VirtualCentre server failed: Permission to perform this operation was denied.
Firstly I have added user to vcenter and granted (read-only then tried administrators) permissions on it. With custom user it was returning
UNKNOWN: Login to VirtualCentre server failed: Cannot complete login due to an incorrect user name or password.
Once added nagios user into ESX from shell it returns permissions denied (see first error)
Found here that non-root users unable to execute administrator operations via SSH, not sure if it is related or not.http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/micros ... Id=2005299
So I am curious if maybe I can change perms for some executables for it to work correctly....?
I would really appreciate help. Please
P.S. I think it is not related to issue but statistics on level 1 for now.
