Temperature Status (VMware) service

N-able N-central uses the Common Information Model (CIM) services and ports for monitoring.

If your ESX/ESXi server is operating on either Dell or HP hardware, it is strongly recommended that you install the Dell or HP Offline Bundle before the Windows probe discovers the ESX/ESXi server.
