I am running PRTG Network Monitor 188.8.131.521. Server OS: Windows Sever 2008
Last night I had 7 sensors on a server go into an unknown state. I had one other sensor that failed and alerted me of an issue. When I checked the server, the ping sensor was good, but the rest were not. They were in an unknown state for over 9 hours. All of the sensors stated they had not received any data in 9 hours 34 minutes and that I should check the WMI delay. This is the only server that is having this issue and was fine last night. The rest of our servers and the probe are all fine. Why didn't the sensors go into a "DOWN" state after not receiving the data required? All of the sensors are WMI senors that monitor either a service or disk space. Is there a way that I can force the sensors to a DOWN state if this happens again?
