Virtual Machine Cluster WMI Failed


  • Hi, I have a two node VMM cluster running on Server 2016. Under Cluster Infrastructure the Virtual machine Cluster WMI resource has failed with the following error: "The Supplied Kernel Information Version is invalid"

    If I attempt to bring it online the error changes to "Failed to bring the resource Virtual Machine Cluster WMI online"

    I also see the following event ID 21502 for Hyper-V-High-Availability:

    'Virtual Machine Cluster WMI' failed to take cluster WMI provider offline during the initialization of the resource: Class not registered (0x80040154).

    I've done some googling but am struggling to find anything on this one can anyone help who may have seen this before?

  • Hi thanks for getting back to me. Whilst that article isn't related to my specific issue I have followed all troubleshooting steps and still have the same issue with the Virtual Mahcine Cluster WMI resource not starting and the error "The Supplied Kernel information version is invalid"

    Does anyone have any ideas?
