Azure Monitor - InsightMetrics omitting Namespace/Name from Windows Server 2012

Hi!

We recently enrolled Azure Arc and Azure Monitoring for VMs using the latest Azure Monitor Agent (1.12.1.0). All VMs are reporting correctly to Azure Arc, but we have an odd problem with our Windows Server 2012 VMs where the NameSpace and Name properties are missing from all InsightMetrics entries. We can see the value, but Namespace/Name is not being logged; Azure Monitor for VMs also fails due to this.

The VMs are reporting Heartbeat correctly, and also other tables such as VMComputer and VMProcess are populated correctly.

Any ideas?
