WMI drops at random intervlas



Hello all, i was looking for a bit of input on a strange problem im having with WMI sensors, they often show the famed PE015 error for around 80% of the time, however the other 20% they display accurate disk space and cpu data. I have tried *everything* on the WMI issues page, learned more about RPC than i ever wanted and consulted our networks team at length however nothing has resolved it

Any advice from users with the same problem or you good folks at paessler?

Hi there,

What version of PRTG are you currently using?

If it's not the most recent one, please update to the latest PRTG version from within (Setup > Auto-Update > 'Check for Latest Update and Download') before proceeding. Please note that monitoring will be disrupted for a few minutes during the update, remote probes (if any) will automatically be updated after the core server is updated.

Best regards.
