For the logfile_usage_with_avail_disk the script used is 'fg_freeSpace_with_avail_disk'.

This is documented in

What Queries (updated ) are used by the sqlserver Probe in UIM?

To gather the system fixed drive free space, the  (hidden) Stored Procedure 'xp_fixeddrives' is used.

In the script, when defining the temp table #space_tab, a 'NOT NULL' constraint is added to the column 'space_available'. The column 'space_available' is updated at the end of the script with the output of 'xp_fixeddrives'.

The checkpoint FG free space requires system rights (granted via sysadmin role) for the user used in sqlserver probe This role is required to run the SP: master.dbo.xp_fixeddrives



Release : 20.3

Component : UIM - SQLSERVER


fg_freespace_with_avail_disk and logfile_usage_with_avail_disk will only work for admin users.
To resolve the issue, you need to add the sysadmin role to the Login user used by the probe.
