The Windows service you want to monitor is not running (Stopped). , but service is running



Hello, I would like to ask you, why PRTG WMI sensor says, that service is stopped, when I can see in OS that the sevice is running. If I use SNMP service sensor, all looks fine. Thanks a lot. Radek

I would suggest you open a support case for this, as we would need screenshots and data from the sensor itself.
