Description :The Sysload Collector stops while adding newer disks on a Windows server: " Maximum number of physical disc reached " or "Maximum number of logical disc reached"

Cause

Cause type:
By design
Root Cause: The collector sets by default the value of Max number of Physical Disks while starting the collector to the value: The same is done for the logical disks:This can be checked on the startup of the collector (sldrmd.log):Therefore, if more than three disks are added while the collector is running, the collector will stop.

Environment

Resolution

Increase the parameter Nb_PDisk or Nb_LDisk to a higher value by setting it on the sldrmd.ini file.
