Hyperic fails to collect data from Windows 2003 server

Hey guys, hope you can help, because I already looked everywhere for this.

I have a Hyperic 5.8.4 server, collecting metrics from some servers. They work fine, except for 3 servers I recently added for monitoring.

All of them are Windows Server 2003 32-bit.

I was able to install the agents in all three without problems. On the web interface, they showed up on "auto-discovery". So far so good.

But then, after adding them, they all were showing 0% availability (even though they are all functional), and no metrics were collected whatsoever. All fields show "no metric data available"

I found a kb saying that to enter "regedit" and look for the Windows performance counters, if they had a item called "Disable Performance Counters". It had, but its value is 0 so, that is not the problem.

Please, answer me if you can.

Best Regards,

Pedro

Is metric collection for these servers enabled on teh global monitoring defaults?

Monitoring defaults > Win32 > edit metric templates

It may be that the metrics aren't set up to collect until you turn them on. You'd have to select the metrics to be collected

Hello, thanks for answering

I really only need the availability, and it is turned on.

I installed on other 2003 machines but they are 2003 R2. I have faced problems basically with win 2003 (not R2).

Maybe there is some workaround with this OS but I can't find it anywhere.
