Windows 2000 - PROBLEM

Attention everyone... If You are running SB EventLog Monitor under Windows 2000, you will NOT get any events and collector script will say "Client is Offline".

There is no fix, but there is one work-around.
Edit WMI-EVENTS.vbs file (under data directory) and change this code:

Set objPing = GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}").ExecQuery("select * from Win32_PingStatus where address = '" & strLine & "'")
For Each objStatus in objPing
If IsNull(objStatus.StatusCode) or objStatus.StatusCode<>0 Then
Wscript.Echo "Client is Offline: " & strLine
Wscript.Echo "Reading events from: " & strLine
GetEvents trim(strLine)
End If
Next... read more
