Sensor WMI Microsoft SQL Server not working



I am trying to setup the WMI SQL Server 2008 probe but keep getting the error message 8004100E: The namespace specified could not be found. Other WMI probes work on the same server (WMI Memory, WMI Service). I'm new to the software and I'm looking for some assistance with this issue.

Please try to use the FQDN name of the database server in the IP settings of the parent device. Does the sensor work afterwards?

Best regards
