Are InTrust agents used to gather from ESX (VMware) servers?
Some customers may wish to know if InTrust agents are required or used to gather from ESX (VMware) servers.
InTrust agents are not required nor used at all for gathering from VMware servers.
InTrust gathers from ESX Servers directly by making remote calls to pull in the data rather than using an Agent on the ESX side; be sure to check these settings below (information taken from "InTrust_<VERSION>_AuditingVMware.pdf"):
1. In the job properties, on the Gathering tab, select the correct site to gather events from.
2. Make sure that the Use agents to execute this job on target computers is turned off.
3. Open the properties of the site that the job uses, and in the To access site objects, use option group, supply the account to use for the vCenter connection.
