2008 Server not supported after resolving error 80041017



After resolving Error # 80041017 via the technet article referenced here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd348620(WS.10).aspx

I am now receiving the following error for Current Disk Queue Length: Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Standard: Not Supported.

Any ideas why this is failing after running the lodctr /r command?

error w2k8 wmi

PRTG throws explicitly this error in the vital system/physical disk sensor if the following occurs: WMI reports a 80041017 error AND the target's OS is Vista or 2k8.

So, I'm afraid, the issue with the missing performance counters still exist.

You can test this quickly running our WMI tester on the computer with PRTG's probe and querying the target computer with the following:

SELECT * FROM win32_perfrawdata_perfdisk_physicaldisk

Kind regards,
