We just set up PRTG to evaluate it. Added a SQL Server and after enabling WMI firewall rules, the auto-discovery worked fine and added a few sensors.

However, when we try to manually add the WMI Microsoft SQL Server 2016 sensor, we get the error:

8004100E: The namespace specified could not be found

Version is PRTG Network Monitor 22.3.79.2108 x64 running on Windows Server 2019 Datacenter

Hello,

each SQL server version uses a different WMI namespace. The question would be if the SQL Server 2019 does work, or not.
