I am trying to monitor my Hyper-V clusters via WMI with PRTG. I used this MS KB article to elevate the authentication level of the PRTG Probe and Server.exe services: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/268884/en-us.
I have only recently discovered PRTG. Until now, I've been relying on IP Network Host Monitor. I have successfully applied the steps in the above KB article, and was able to query root\MSCluster with IPNHM. However, the same fix does not seem to have worked either for PRTG or Paessler's WMITool.exe. Both return the following error, even though I am using the Domain Admin account in both cases:
"80041003: The current user does not have permission to perform the action."
Again, on the same server, using the same credentials, I have no problems using other programs to query the cluster. Also, the server and Hyper-V Cluster are both on the same network in the same domain.
Is there any other executable whose authentication level I have to elevate (doubt this will fix it, as WMITest.exe fails)? Any other suggestions?
