I need to query IIS information from "root\MicrosoftIISv2" namespace. Problem is this query only works with Authentication Level "Packet Privacy" Is there any way to mimic this with WMI and PRTG WQL ?

Thx :O(

The name of the executable is "PRTG Probe.exe".

The authentication level the PRTG uses is not configurable, sorry.

Kind regards,

Hi Gerard, Thanx for good tip, however I'm already monitoring all these with custom SNMP sensor. What I'm interested in is stuff like web state (On/Off/Paused) and that I can find only in the root\MicrosoftIISv2 namespace for WMI.

thx

Can you access that namespace with a locally running WMI Tester? If so you could run a remote probe on that specific server, monitoring the counters you need.

Kind regards,

I'm having the same problem. What is the name of the executable that runs performs the WMI queries for PRTG and is the authentication level set or configurable? I am query the state of IIS application pools on a remote machine. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Thanks. I was also looking at monitoring the PHP prcosses which run for most of the webistes. The websites is the "User Name" listed under the process. Though I couuld kill two bird woth one stone by monitoring User Name of the prcoesses.

Dear Paessler, are you planning to change or at least make configurable the AuthenticationLevel? I'm having the same problem with the namespace root\mscluster requiring PacketPrivacy.

Querying via Powershell works for the monitoring user using PacketPrivacy but fails with the following Error in PRTG and WMITester:

"80041003: The current user does not have permission to perform the action."

Thank you

Thomas

Hi,
Currently there are no plans to make the Authentication Level customizable. Sorry.
Best regards
