I have started getting this error out of the blue. Been running PA Monitor for years and for years on the same server. Never an issue. Now I get this error and corresponding emails about 1,000 times per hour.

I saw a couple of other threads about it, but no real answer to what the issue is or how to solve it. Can someone help? Here is the full email.

Hi pukkainc,

We've received a number of notes about this lately. We're assuming a Windows Update must have disabled the Remote Event Log Management rule in Windows Firewall. Enable that rule and the monitor should start working again.

Thanks
Quinn
