Exchange DAG sensor - No DAG Mailbox found on server




I was just trying to add the above mentioned sensor to our system. After recognizing I need a FQDN instead of IP I now run into this problem while trying to add the sensor:

Sorry, the scan for available monitoring items has failed!

Could not create the Exchange Database DAG (PowerShell) sensor on device (<dagname>).

No DAG Mailbox found on server '<dagname>'

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Daniel

Sorry, this was my bad. Reading sometimes helps. I tried to create the sensor on the DAG name but needs to be done on a mailbox server itself.
