Thank you for your message.

By default, the WMI UTC Time sensor goes into Error state only when something occurs during the execution of the WMI request to the target device.

However, like with the other sensors you can configure channel limits. For example, with this sensor you can configure alerts when the value in the channel "Difference" is higher than a defined time (in seconds).

Kind regards.
