nsblue - I am looking into how the WMI Browser determines it's license state...
Nsblue - I sent you an email...
OK - here is what you need to do.
On the machine that you refer to above:
- Close all Engineer's Toolset applications
- Open SolarWinds License Manager
- Either use the Engineer's Toolset->Utility->Install License Mgr shortcut to install it, or
- Use the shortcut it created when it installed (Start->SolarWinds->License Manager)
- If the version of License Manager is less than 220.127.116.111, close it and re-open it until it updates itself to that version or greater (it is a MS OneClick installer, but sometime take a few tries to get an update).
- Select the Engineer's Toolset license and select Deactivate.
- Once the license is deactivated, select the Activate link to reactivate your license; You will need to log back in to the Customer Portal to get a new activation key for the activation.
The WMI Browser should work fine after that.
That got it all straight.
The amount of data available via the browser is amazing. Does not appear that all are active though. I would assume there is some server side enabling that must be done for some of the counters. So once I have counters selected, then what? Is my only option to have a display list of counters and their last recorded value. Am I able to plot these over time like the other gadgets?
