  • All are at SC 2016 CU5.  I ran windows and SC updates on all SC servers and clients.  The crash in vmms.exe persists.  The event correlates each time to gethypervmeteringusage.ps1.

    Event ID 1102 in the Operations Manager log.

    GetHyperVMeteringUsage.ps1 : HyperVMetering: Failed to reset VM Resource Metering for VM :

    Where can I find this monitor to override?  I'm not having any luck..
