I'm trying to use WMI Custom Sensor to get the space used by VSS Shadow copies on our servers (2012 R2).
I'm running this WMI query with the sensor :
SELECT UsedSpace FROM Win32_ShadowStorage
When I use this query locally on one of the servers that I want to monitor, I get a result in bytes.
But with the sensor, as with PRTG's WMI tester tool, I get this error :
80041014: A component, such as a provider, failed to initialize for internal reasons.
Other WMI sensors (eventlog, logical disk) just works well on those devices.
I've tried to modify the namespace parameter on the sensor from
root\cimv2 to nothing (blank field) : no more result.
Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong ?
