Hello Michel,

Thank you for contacting Paessler Support.

Please head to the settings of the affected device and check the Schedules, Dependencies, and Maintenance Window for a broken dependency.

If there is a entry with unknown object or similar, please adjust the option back to Use parent and save the settings.

If this does not solve the issue, please forward us a PDF export from the settings tab and a screenshot from the device overview tab (full screen, not cropped) for analysis.

Best regards,
Sven Roggenhofer [Paessler Technical Support]
