Hi there,

Are you using the Eventlog API Sensor here? Does it work when adding the sensor manually instead of cloning it?

Kind regards,

Erhard

Yes, i am using the Eventlog API Sensor. No it does not. I have the same result if i configure sensor manually.

Thank you Erhard! Your advice was helpful. The creation of the WMI Eventlog Sensor has helped me.
