This object monitors product licensing information and generates an alert if Server for NFS cannot validate the license, if the alert is enabled for this monitor.
Server for NFS must be able to validate NFS licensing information for the service to be functional.
This monitor can enter a Warning or Critical health state if Server for NFS is unable to validate licensing information or Server for NFS is not supported on this version of Windows. You can determine which of these two situations is applicable by inspecting the Windows System event log and searching for messages from event source Microsoft-Windows-ServicesForNFS-Server and the following events IDs:
Event 1015 indicates a license validation failure. This may be due to insufficient system resources or problems with the Software Licensing service.
Event 1016 indicates Services for NFS Server is not supported on this version of Windows.
The server will not function until this information can be validated.
If the health state is unknown, it means that monitoring has not yet begun for this object.
For a license validation failure, the computer may have had limited resources available at the time Server for NFS was started.
