Error with Custom Sensor

Hi,

I have created a custom sensor to monitor DFSR with a script running in the background. It runs fine against one server.

If I try to recreate or clone this sensor and apply it to another server I receive a:

Response not wellformed: "(C:\Program Files (x86)\PRTG Network Monitor\custom sensors\EXE\dfsr_check_script.vbs(28, 1) Microsoft VBScript runtime error: Permission denied )" (code: PE132)

error message.

Please could you advise.

Thanks, Gareth

Hi,
the error seems to be thrown because PRTG does not have the correct permissions to execute the same. Please try also activating the debug mode of the sensor. Therefore switch to tab Settings of the same and set option EXE Result to Write EXE result to disk . This will create a file called Result of Sensor XXXX.txt in the \Logs (Sernsor) subfolder of the PRTG Data Directory.
Please post the contents of the file.

Hi,

This is the error from the TXT generated:

C:\Program Files (x86)\PRTG Network Monitor\custom sensors\EXE\dfsr_check_script.vbs(28, 1) Microsoft VBScript runtime error: Permission denied

Thanks.

Hi,

It IS a premissions issue. I setup the probe to use a domain admin account but it doesn't seem to have filtered down to the servers. I only became aware of this when I tried to create a WMI sensor.

I assume this is all because I originally configured PRTG with a local account then added various servers after. Only later did I change the account at the top level.

Anyway, it's fixed!

Thanks.

I have a very similar problem my VBScript sensor is giving me the same error even though the response from running it in command prompt is 19:ok.

the contents of the sensor log file are:

C:\Program Files (x86)\PRTG Network Monitor\custom sensors\EXE\GetIntelliloggerMemUsedPct.vbs(1, 1) (null): Unspecified error

Thanks for any help you can give me

Hi there,

As the log states, the sensor runs into the following error:

Unspecified error

Please make sure that the sensor is executed with the correct user by specifying correct credentials in the device settings and enabling "Use Windows credentials of parent device" in the sensor settings.

Best regards.
