PRTG shows on my fileserver PE013.

The sensor should show free space on disk C:\ of this server (WMI).

Thanks

Hello,

PE013 indicates a problem with the drive(s). Have there been any changes made to the target host (new hard-drive(s), changed hard-drive(s))?

Does a new sensor work?

Best Regards.

Hi

A new sensor is indeed working. But there was no change on the Harddisk - it's a virtuall cluster server.

It's fine when this is a one time issue, but is it possible that I can check a log or so to see where the problem was?

Best Regards

Hello,

then the cluster is the issue in this case. PRTG uses the 'DeviceID' to monitor the drives, and this one changes if the cluster switches nodes. A work-around would be to use the Single-Disk WMI Sensors. They have an option to not use the DeviceID, and instead use the drive-letter, which shouldn't change in the cluster.

Best Regards.
