How to successfully monitor Hyper-V servers



Whenever I include a Hyper-V sensor I get a:

Connection could not be established (800706BA: The RPC server is unavailable - Host: x.x.x.x, User: user, Password: **, Domain: ntlmdomain:contoso) (code: PE015)

I thought this would be a firewall issue but I have the firewall turned off. The services are running on the server too. Any idea what could be causing this error?

Please have a look at https://www.paessler.com/knowledgebase/en/topic/1073-what-are-the-most-common-errors-when-monitoring-wmi section 800706BA. Hopefully you'll find a solution there.

Kind regards,
