    Posted 6 days ago

    VMware VirtualCenter 7.0.3 build-24026615

    We use Science Logic to monitor our environment and this particular vCenter, let's call it VCP01, was showing as Unavailable in Science Logice (SciLo). I found that to fix the issue I had to enable SNMP service on the vCenter so I did and it fixed the issue- the vCenter was not showing as OK in SciLo. I used this BASH shell command:

    systemctl enable snmpd

    So does this mean the service was disabled?

    How can I check if a service such as this one is enabled and if it is started in the first place?
