SNMP reports start and WMI is not.

We use Solarwinds Orion Network monitoring tool which gets it's info via SNMP.  About once a week the Solarwinds is showing that the DNS service has started on one of our internal DNS servers.  When I go to the servers event viewer I can't find a corresponding DNS start event.  Solarwinds Tech told me that the event viewer is getting it's info via WMI.  So my question is why would SNMP show a DNS start and WMI does not?

They both should show when the DNS starts. Can you restart DNS service and see if it listed in Event Viewer and also shows up in Solarwinds?

Yes, it shows up in both when I manually start and stop DNS.

Then go back to Solarwinds and explain to them that their SNMP alerts are not working they way they should be. Maybe there should be a different MIB that is needed.
