Did you set a subscription for where the server should send the events to? Should be the SIM server. This can be done from SIM. You need write rights in the WMI stack, a local admin should be more thanmore than enough or a configured user that has wmi rights.

Kind regards,

Hi Andrew,

My login to the server is local administrator and domain admins.

There is no configured SIM server yet.
I don't know where to configure the subscription.

Hello,

There are two methodes, both done from the SIM interface. You can choose your systems that your to set the subscription for and then select Configure > Repair option from the menu. The first screen has an option to set a wbem subscription, remember that you need credentials to set the subscription for your destination servers. The second option can be found under the menu option Options> Events, here you can also create a sheduled task that will create a subscription for say the collection Servers. The advantage to this is when you run this every week/day that you don't have to set this by hand every time a new server gets adder to your SIM server.
Kind regards,

Andrew
