    Monitor for SQL server


      I am trying to monitor a server running SQL 2005. I am able to monitor everything on the server but when I try to set up monitors for SQL it recieve this message. "The remote device rejected the request due to an internal error." I am using the same creditals that I used to monitor the server and when I am on the server I use windows authentication to get into the database. Any ideas?

          Hello villanvm,

          This can occur if the SQL Server specific performance counters are not registered as WMI classes.  In order to reregister them, simply run the following command from a CMD Window on the SQL Server host:

          wmiadap /f

          Let me know if this helps or not.
