Version x64 -> SSH Disk sensors no longer work?



After upgrading to version x64, I can no longer monitor ESXi hosts via SSH disk sensors(It affects all probes)

The logs don't show anything out of the ordinary. If I attempt to create an SSH disk sensor, it sits on "preparing sensor settings". I have also done the following:

Rebooted the server(which has the primary management server installed). Restarted all the probes via the "administrative tools" section Cleared the caches via the "administrative tools" section

I can confirm that SSH connectivity from the probes is functioning correctly

thank you very much for your KB-Post. This is quite strange we can't see any such issues in our various production and test-PRTGs, which monitor dozens of different ESX(i)-Servers. Which ESX(i)-Version are you using?

best regards.

ESXi version 4.1 348481

I've just tested it on ESXi 5 and it seems fine with that one

this was indeed a bug. The fix will be published with the next release of PRTG (eta October 14th)

Kind regards
