WMI Error - Server execution failed

    Question

  • Out of 400 servers, only one is throwing this error so it is a local issue.  The server is not a part of a cluster, but the cluster discovery is throwing an error.

    I've run WMI command and it throws an error.  Does anyone know how to fix this on a Server 2008 R2 system?


    C:\Users\<UserName>>wmic
    wmic:root\cli>Path Win32_Service Where "Name=ClusSvc"
    Node - <ComputerName>
    ERROR:
    Description = Server execution failed

    From Operations Manager Event Log...  

    Log Name:      Operations Manager
    Source:        Health Service Modules
    Date:          5/16/2013 1:35:06 PM
    Event ID:      10409

    HRESULT: 0x80080005 
    Details: Server execution failed


    One or more workflows were affected by this.  

    Workflow name: Microsoft.Windows.Cluster.Service.Discovery

    Instance ID: {5A96B31D-1AE5-9947-94C6-F0A4A6AFEF30} 
    Management group: AMEDISYS

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

  • This is a basic discovery whether this server is a cluster or not. If this fails i am pretty sure you have loads of other wmi/script errors on this server.

    i'm not familiar with the errorcode, but "5" usually means authentication problems. You might wanna try to write a script with that query and run it with the action account credentials (usually local system) to see what is going on exactly.
