OpsMgr Warnings from the VEM

Veeam Logoby maekee » Tue Nov 18, 2008 8:31 am

Hi everyone,
A couple of days ago we imported the nWorks MP and installed the VIC on a separate virtual VEM from the RMS.
Everything seems to work fine except some warning-messages that i cant explain.

The following messages repeats from about 5 to 30 times per hour.
They are all Warning-messages and looks like this:

Alert Rule: WMI Probe Module Execution Failure
Description: Object enumeration failed Query: 'select * from VMHOSTCLUSTER' HRESULT: 0x80041006 Details: Out of memory One or more workflows were affected by this. Workflow name: nworks.VMware.VEM.VMCCR.Collect.memoryUsedPct Instance name: c2 Instance ID: {94F0A9FA-8327-7B62-C4C4-D13585B10933} Management group: MOM_MG
3 repeats in 60 minutes

Same Rule, (WMI Probe Module Execution Failure)
Different Description:

27 repeats in 60 minutes

What is this?

Hi Maekee

These errors indicate a problem within WMI itself....usually related to performance/resources.

Can you confirm what version of -
Windows
nworks MP
nworks Collector
...you are running?

What size is the VMware environment you are monitoring? (How many Hosts and VMs?)

Are you seeing any other error messages relating to WMI? (for example in the VEMs Application log)

Thanks!
Alec

Hi Maekee,

Sorry for the delay in replying...I have been travelling.

There are some known issues with SCOM and WMI (I think you had an email from our support team on this)
Can you confirm you are running SCOM SP1?

Is this server dedicated to nworks, or sharing with another app? Is it a VM or physical server?

You can try clearing and rebuilding the wmi repository on the nworks server with cmd:
WMIADAP.exe /f

Let me know if that helps,

Thanks
Alec

Hi Maekee,

Well - the event 11904 is nothing to do with the nworks MP - it refers to "MomUIGeneratedRule7b640e9b41fc40619a54e3373d89a776".
This is a custom rule generated in the Ops Mgr Console Authoring section. For that issue I suspect that the property 'Parameter 1' is either formatted wrong, does not exist, or is the wrong data type.

For the first event, 10409 - that is an nworks DataSource, but again indicates a problem within WMI rather than the MP.
Were you able to try the WMIADAP /f command?

How much RAM does this machine have? How much CPU?
Is it a VM or physical box?
Are you seeing high cpu/memory % usage?

Thanks
Alec

Hi there,
Ok, i will find out what rule the event id 11904 referrs to.. thanks for the info

About 10409, yes i ran the wmiadap /f, no more errors have arrived since yesterday.
So i will wait and see if the problem was solved then and there.

If not, i'll get back in touch

About your Q's:
Its a VM with 2GB RAM and 3GHz CPU
No high CPU/Memory % Usage what i can see.. maybe peaks that i dont see
