WMI sensors stop working



WMI sensors stop working. nothing has changed on network, with service account being used, or on the server where the WMI sensors WERE working. At random time, PRTG starts puking up "Connection could not be established (code: PE015)" messages on some of the WMI sensors on server in question but not all of them.
