While clearing flags on an event receiver I came across this error message, I've tried multiple methods but I cant seem to remove the message.
The data source is setup pointing to "nothing" and has client data sources like the following.
This is a WMI data source.
Device Name (127.0.0.80)
Device 1 (Actual IP Address)
Device 2 (Actual IP Address)
Device 3 (Actual IP Address)
Does anyone know how to stop the connect error from occurring? Since its just pointing to "nowhere" and is just acting as a container for other data sources within a physical location.
You need this parent for inherit the connection credentials. You can change this parent to existing Datasource. This will be solve your error message.
Seems about right, unfortunately changing the parent device to an existing datasource cant be done, know of any other work-arounds?
This was a decision made before my time, makes the management and troubleshooting of datasources quite difficult and also spams up the receiver logs with 1270.0.XX WMI connection failed errors.
