VMWare ESX Host System: Maintenance State

Distribution: official part of Check_MK
License: GPL
Supported Agents: vSphere

This check queries the maintenance State of an ESX host system via the vsphere agent and returns:

OK if the ESX host has the same state since the last service detection.

CRIT if the state has changed.

The behavior can be changed by a Wato rule to force Maintenance mode or not.

See "Monitoring VMWare ESX with Check_MK" in the online documentation as well.


On each ESX host one check is generated.
