HPE Custom Image for ESXi 6.7 + Proliant Microserver Gen10 No IPMI capabilities

Hi there,

I’m really a newbie, so I may be asking something stupid, but I hope you can help me.

I downloaded and installed the HPE Custom Image for ESXi 6.7 GA Install CD on a HPE Proliant Microserver Gen 10 and everything went smoothly.

The thing now is about monitoring.

On the web client I go to Host > Monitor and the system says: This system has no IPMI capabilities, you may need to install a driver to enable sensor data to be retrieved.

Since here https://www.hpe.com/it/it/servers/hpe-esxi.html you can read (in Italian) “it supports Gen 9 and newer servers”

My understanding was that using this image I would not need to install anything else to monitor stuff like the RAID controller status.


Can you help me?


The final goal is to get to know ESXi, in order to make a step forward and offer our customers a better service but I am moving my first steps in this V-world and everything is really interesting but overwhelming.


Thanks in advance.
