Application Windows IIS sensor Error




I try to monitor with Application Windows IIS sensor, when i create the sensor, i have no problem. If i wait 1 hour i have this message : WMI : Impossible d'établir la connexion (code: PE015) -- PerfCounter: Impossible de se connecter suivant les informations d'identification indiqués. Assurez-vous qu'elles ne sont pas seulement valides pour le système cible, mais aussi pour le système du probe. (erreur de compteur de performance 0xB0000004)

I don't change the login, i have the problem with all my server. I have set the primary monitoring method to WMI only.

Have you an idea ?

It sounds like this machine's WMI subsystem is having issues and you will probably have to troubleshoot the issue on that machine. We have a few articles here and here that cover some of the ways to fix WMI and we also have a WMI Tester that may be of use to you as well.
