Sorry, I really do not understand the differences in wato/omd/etc.

Ssh agent polling is just using ssh wrapper to run the same agent. It's
the same as normal agent tests except instead of hitting a port on the
host it uses ssh for the same.
That said I've reviewed the above and as I mentioned both work
individually. I am guessing either there is some backend issue with it
not liking "Individual program call instead of agent access" (ssh agent)
instead of the normal method.

I do not have the agent listening to ports so cannot test but with the
ssh+snmp it failed in my previous trials.
I guess I should have titled this "agent+snmp issues" instead of
"agent+vsphere". Our real concern is being able to use both the agent
and snmp tests. I'll poke around and see what I can find.
