i have the node setup and its returning data memory cpu usage the whole thing. I then go to add SQL WMI monitors assign to node pick it from the list it then fails on test except for the SQL server port. From the SAM server I can browse to the file shares I can ping. I try and open performance monitor and connect to to another computer it says the network path was not found. The servers I'm trying to add the monitor are in a different domain and different subnets. I added their info into the hosts file didn't help. Any ideas what to try next? Thanks
What is the error you're seeing in the component monitor details view for these WMI monitors? Is there a domain trust between the Orion server and the domain of the remote host you're looking to monitor? Have you tried using the "SQL Server 2005-2008 Performance (SQL)" template instead of the "SQL Server 2005-2008 Performance (WMI)" one?
Lastly, from the SAM server are you able to open perfmon.exe and connect to the remote host and browse/list/monitor windows performance counters on that host?
