Odd WMI Problem



I am having a strange issue with some new remote WMI sensors. They all return PE015 code but when I run the WMI Tester program it works with no issues whatsoever. I am using a domain admin account the username/passwords are correct. The firewalls are actually turned off. Are there any other suggestions for further testing? It does not seem to be a WMI issue per se since I am able to execute WMI queries from the computer running the remote probe with out a problem.

And this morning it is working. Nothing changed / no ideas.

does it help to run the PRTG Probe Service under a domain admin account instead of the default LOCAL SYSTEM?

best regards
