Installed on the probe:
- WSUS Admin console 3.0 (successfully connected to the WSUS server)
- .Net Framework 4.7.2

Inherited User is also member of the WSUS Administrators.

WSUS.exe (C:\Program Files (x86)\PRTG Network Monitor\Sensor System) output doesn't tell me anything:
- a lot of parameters and at the end "Returns: WSUS statistics"

401-error ptfsensor wsus

Hello Youki,

Can you please share the output while manually running the sensor / script?

Also, which parameters do you pass? You can obfuscate passwords if required.


Kind regards,
Felix Saure, Tech Support Team
