After upgrading to v.7, an unreasonable number of the following alerts are visible in SCOM:
"Veeam VMware Collector: Failed to gather Host hardware data via CIM"
To optimize CIM collection, asynchronous polling method was introduced in Veeam MP 7. If in response to Veeam query only part of the requested sensor information is returned, a retry is initiated, and Refresh Hardware method cannot be called.
Fix can be downloaded here. It should be applied on all collectors.
Please be aware that we’re making changes which will restrict access to product updates for users without an active contract.
