Hello, I have EXE/Script sensor with powershell script. This script is using ODBC to check values in my Firebird database. Some days ago I had to change password database and sensor stop working. So I changed password in my ODBC source but sensor is still not working. It looks like it have cached old version of script. I tried script in Powershell IDE and I tried to add new sensor with same script, both working fine. Can you please give me hint, why "old" sensor is not working?

Thank you for any advice

Dear Sk1X1,

PRTG does not cache scripts. In case you use remote probes, please update the script on the remote probes as well. Does it not work as expected?

Scripts are on my core probe. At the end I tried to change Security context to "Use security context of probe service" and it looks it helped. I'm not sure why, because I don't anything else (excepts the database password change) changed on the server.
