PRTG not working after upgrade to the



I had stable 600 SNMP sensors setup until i run upgrade to Right after the upgrade my sensors started going "down" with errors Error opening snmp session: Unknown host (x.x.x.x:161) (Bad file descriptor) (SNMP error # -2006). Then they randomly come back up and go down again. Operations, like Pause/Resume are slow, take good 10-15 minuted to start a sensor. Does anybody else have this issue with new version? To normalize the setup i had to move scanning to 60 minutes, but as i said, this is defiantly related to software upgrade.

Thanks, Sergiy CCIE #28978
