Random false warnings and down sensors.



I added a new device and put sensors on it. Only on this one device my sensors are failing. I randomly get false warnings and sensor down errors. These are WMI sensors on a VM running Server 2008 R2. I have many other hosts being monitored the same way and this does not happen on any of them. Only on this one host.

error false wmi
