Thanks for contacting us.

Please log onto the machine where the probe is installed and manually start the SQLv2.exe file in the directory

C:\Program Files (x86)\PRTG Network Monitor\Sensor System

Fill in the credentials and the query and see if it works. Please do also test an administrative database user to preclude access write issues.
