When setting up VMWare monitoring if forgot to add StartVMwareCollectors option to Server/Proxy configuration file an item would not become NOTSUPPORTED. E. g.
- create vmware item e. g. vmware.fullname[https://192.168.10.10/sdk]
- make sure StartVMwareCollectors is not specified in Server/Proxy configuration file
- start Server/Proxy
An item will not receive any data and will not get NOTSUPPORTED state. Expected result would be a NOTSUPPORTED state item with error message something like VMWare collector not started.
