In Version I started getting these on the Inventory Collector on some Windows servers. Not all. Looks like related to Windows 2003 but unsure. All other monitor runs fine. Nothing changed on the server and this is not on all servers.

I have tried to run only with only WMI (check box 1) and the only with (Collect System details) but there is no difference. Both get me the same Warning message.

I have restarted Satellite but no difference. Searching for Advice.
