task schedule error



When I want to add a new sensor " Windows task schedule" on my Windows 2008R2-server, I get the error;

Unable to authenticate as \administrator. [1367] A logon request contained an invalid logon type value I cannot figure out what is wrong. I use that same username for my WMI-checks.

My Remote Services are started, .NET4.5 is installed. I also tried starting the remote services, with the administrator-account but that doesn't solve my problem.

Have you tried entering the domain in the windows credentials in the settings of the device?

Yes, also tried that. He doesn't recognize the name either.

After I tried to use a . (dot) as computername, he accepts that. its working :)
