hi,

i found the above sensor and it works out of the box well, with one small issue. The dwm-X users being shown. Now there is supposed to be a "-nodwm" switch, but this does not seem to work.

I have the following parameters

-c=<server> -u=<user> -p<hash> -nodwm

but i still see all the dwm-X users listed. What is the correct syntax or the correct way of removing all the dwm-x users permantely?

Thanks in advanced! regards

Hi there,

I can confirm that there seems to be an issue with this "-nodwm" swtich, I'll contact the developer about it and get back to you.

Kind regards,

Erhard

Hi,

Can it be the case that you created the sensor and added the -nodwm parameter afterwards?
In that case the sensor's cache file still holds the DWM users.

Please delete the sensor and create a new one adding the -nodwm parameter immediately.
To make sure the sensor creates a new cache file, clearing the redundent channels, also immediately add the parameter -id=[unique number], where [unique number] can be anything like the SensorID or simply 1234

There also is a new version of this sensor available just now at http://prtgtoolsfamily.com/downloads/sensorsxml

Hi there,

i downloaded it yesterday - so i guess it is the newest version (or was it updated today)?

I have already tried creating a new sensor with the -nodwm in the parameters - does not work.

I will try the cache part and get back in a second :)

I can confirm it works correctly when using the new executable and the additional -id=som_Random_number parameter.

@grams: Please note that it's not possible to remove once existing "DWM-x" channels in the sensor, you need to create a new sensor for it to work correctly so that they do not get created initially.

I am having an issue with this sensor on a particular server. It gives me an Object reference not set to an instance of an object error message. Has anyone seen this before?

All it says is "Object reference not set to an instance of an object."
