Troubleshooting SQL template



I created a set of sensors on a device using the sql server v2 sensor. When I was satisfied, I created a device template based on that device. When I try to create a new device from that template, the auto discovery completes, but no sensors are added. How can I trouble shoot this?

Hello there,

Does it work when you add one of those sensors manually to the device where the sensors don't get created? For further troubleshooting use "Setup | Contact Support" to send us logs and let us know the name of the template you're using.

Kind regards,

I can recreate the sensors using the same query files and they pull data. I will upload logs this afternoon.
