WMI Sensor Type - grayed out



I've followed the guidelines listed in the URL https://www.paessler.com/knowledgebase/en/topic/1043-my-wmi-sensors-don-t-work-what-can-i-do

But I'm still seeing Note: Windows credentials have not been set for the device or one of its parents when I attempt to set the WMI Disk Free sensor.

What am I missing to allow this options?

have you entered Credentials for Windows Monitoring (typically those of an Admin Account) in the Settings of the device you want to add the sensor to? Otherwise you wouldn't see this message.

Best Regards.
