Device template not creating correct sensor



I created a device template from a device that has one sensor - WMI Free Disk Space (Single Disk)

When i create a template, is only appears to have a "ping" sensor

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?> <devicetemplate id="custom" name="Template1" priority="1"> <check id="ping" meta="ping"/> </devicetemplate>

Can i manually edit the template to comtain the sensor i want?

I'm sorry I forgot, the WMI Single Disk Free Sensor does not support device templates, as it stores the GUID of the drive it monitors, which is unique. Please use the WMI Multi-Disk Sensor in this case.
