Adding free esxi to manageiq - data collection is not happening

Hi Expert,

I am adding vmware free esxi to manageiq as host. My credeintial are validated but data collection is not happening.

But when add same esxi as provider ( vcenter) data collection starts.

Pls help

Inventory collection starts at the provider level which it seems you have already determined.

If you are adding the host directly under the Infrastructure -> Host tab it could be used in Host Provisioning if configured properly.
