Having trouble with WMI free space sensor



Getting this error: 80070553: Cannot start a new logon session with an ID that is already in use and - Note: the OS version of the device could not be determined, WMI might not work reliably.

The Probe Health sensor on this same server is working fine. I've tried to delete the sensor and add it back but the same error occurs.

can you give us some more details please? It's the WMI Disk Space sensor on the (Local) Probe Device? Which Windows version is this?

best regards.

The server is Windows 2003 and hosted at a remote location. The parent probe has several other sensors running that are working fine. On this particular server is also a Probe Health sensor that is working as well.

Please have a look at this knowledge base article by Microsoft. Does this help you?

Kind regards,

Not sure. This error appears at the dashboard and then goes away. I'm not sure if the error is for the remote server or our monitoring system server.

If the sensor is in the 'Probe Device' then it's the monitoring host. Otherwise it's a target host.
