I just installed a new Probe server and it stops working randomly (every 2-3 days)



Your Vote:



I cannot even restart the service the only way is to reboot the server then it will work for couple of days and randomly stop. This is the message that I am seeing.

The server is Windows 2019

Hello Ilias,

the faulting module "RPCRT4.dll" is a Windows component for the RPC interface.
Did you already perform a full Windows Update on the server?

This can also happen if you have many WMI sensors with a very short polling rate, can you check the type of sensors and increase the interval for these sensors.

If the issue persists feel free to open a support ticket with us.\ Please use the "Contact Support" button on the web interface for this and include a support bundle.

Kind regards,
Johannes Beyerlein, Technical Support Team
