      Vmware: 6.0 and 5.5 - single host ESXi

      Description

      Goal: I want to get notified when ESXi host stops responding.

      So, I created an item (from the template btw) called every minute:
      vmware.hv.uptime[{$URL},{HOST.HOST}]
      which works fine - I can see latest data being updated precisely.

      Then I created a trigger:
      {Vmware ESXi host:vmware.hv.uptime[{$URL},{HOST.HOST}].nodata(5m)}=1
      Which is OK as long as the ESXi host is UP and running.

      Once I shut down the ESXi server, the trigger status changes to UNKNOWN and it fails with following message:
      Cannot evaluate function "...UUID...:vmware.hv.uptime[{$URL},{HOST.HOST}].nodata(5m)": item is not supported.

      Unfortunately, nothing happens.
