Yesterday a new version (0.10.0) of pywbem was released. Will the monitoring plugin check_esxi_hardware continue to run without a glitch? It should, since the plugin was "made ready" for future releases of pywbem (see New version of check_esxi_hardware supports pywbem 0.9.x).

Let's try check_esxi_hardware with the new pywbem version. I used pip to upgrade pywbem to the latest available version:

 $ sudo pip install --upgrade pywbem
Downloading/unpacking pywbem from

And then launched the plugin:

$ ./ -H esxiserver -U root -P secret -v

As you can see, the new version works without problems. Go ahead and upgrade pywbem.
