Invert Service Sensor



Is it possible to reverse a "WMI Service" Sensor query. So that the correct state is "stopped" and the state in which an error message should be generated is "started".

Hi Stan,

The status of the native sensor cannot directly be converted, still you can work around this by using the Sensor factory sensor as described here.
