Check_esxi_hardware not working


#1

I have tried to use the check_esxi_hardware.py python script but im not getting any answers.

This is the command im using:

python check_esxi_hardware.py -H https://10.x.x.x:5988 -U ‘root’ -P ‘blablah’ -v

This is the answer im getting:

20180423 16:12:40 LCD Status: True

20180423 16:12:40 Connection to https://10.x.x.x
20180423 16:12:40 Found pywbem version 0.8.0~dev
20180423 16:12:40 Check classe OMC_SMASHFirmwareIdentity
UNKNOWN: (0, ‘Socket error: [Errno 110] Connection timed out’)

I have found this old topic with the same problem:
https://communities.vmware.com/docs/DOC-7170

I already restarted the CIM via shell and GUI like suggested here:

Nothing helped, any ideas?
