[Check_mk (english)] Vmware Vsphere Snapshots Plugin

I just ran into this a few weeks back myself and it turned out that the names of the VMs in vCenter need to *exactly* match the names of the servers within check_mk.  If they don't, it won't monitor them.  Once I re-named my VMs, including case sensitivity, it worked fine.

I seem to be unable to get the virtual machine snapshots to show up in inventory on either ESXI or the VM inventory. I used to be able to see these but have not seen them as an inventory in about a year after an past update.

  1.  I have read only user on the ESXI host
  2.  I have setup a datasource rule that monitors Vpshere and when I run inventory on the ESXI hosts, I see all vms and various information but the check plugin esx_vsphere_snapshots is not listed anywhere.
  3.  Same with the virtual machine inventory, I have an agent installed on both windows and linux servers and there are no esx_vsphere_snapshots listed in inventory.
  4.  I see this on 5.5,6.0, 6.5 vmware ESXi machines.

How may I monitor the snapshots on the vmware esxis?
