Getting "network error" for most Windows Devices

    We are running Zenoss 6.2.1 Community with about 100 windows devices. We are seeing "network error" message in zenpython for about 70% of our devices. Everything is running on AWS, so networking shouldn't be an issue. Our Zenoss server doesn't have any memory or CPU issues. Here is a sample message:

    2020-03-19 18:22:43,952 WARNING zen.MicrosoftWindows: network error on HOSTNAME.local: timeout

    We have the latest Windows (2.9.4) and PythonCollector (1.11.0) ZenPacks installed.

    Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this?

    Thanks in advance,

    Is this a consistent "network error" or intermittent?  If consistent, then my (limited) experience is to re-read (perhaps yet again).  Articles like  . I generally find it is to do with configuration on the Windows targets, rather than the configuration in Zenoss (though some things obviously have to match).
