Windows Update Status (powershell) Sensor Stopped Working After Update



We've just upgraded our PRTG to but now all the Windows Update Status sensor stopped working.

They are all showing as Grey(?) and with status "No data yet".

All other sensors is working and we have other powershell sensors that is fine.

Have tried deleting and re-adding the sensor and rebooting the server.

Any idea how we can fix this?


powershell update windows

It seems that there is in fact a bug with this sensor in the newest version. We need to test and repair it and I will update this article as soon as I have more information.

Our developer found the bug today and the fix should be in the next stable release. Once the new release comes out, you should be able to download and install it over the current version you are running and it will take care of the issue. Let me know if you have any issues with this.
