    Where do I find and what is the server service NetworkProvider

    Steve Kuplic

      When my attempt at upgrading our Tableau server from 9.0 to 9.3 failed I found a document that let me know that I needed to ensure that the following services were running on the server:


      • Windows Management Instrumentation
      • WMI Performance Adapter
      • NetworkProvider


      Windows Management Instrumentation was running, WMI Performance Adapter was not running, and NetworkProvider did not exist.


      Any search for "NetworkProvider" returns the document mentioned above or results for network providers such as AT&T.


      Does anyone know where I can find this service so that it can be added to our Tableau servers?


      Does anyone know what this service does?


      I appreciate any help I can get.


      Thank you.
