Setting up an MS SQL v2 sensor, no options available for Data Processing



When I set up our MS SQL v2 sensor, all I get in the Data Processing "drop-down" is "Just execute the query"; there are no other select-able options.

I'm sure I must be missing something simple - any suggestions?

Dear trackhntr

Which PRTG version are you using? During the sensor creation, the processing configuration is not made as a drop-down menu, instead it is an array of radio buttons. After the sensor creation, the processing option cannot be changed.

I'll try recreating the sensor.

Creating the sensors from scratch did allow me to make the selection.
