  • According to the release notes this hotfix is included in SP1.  We are currently operating SCOM 2007 R2, so I believe this file is already included.

  • Interesting that this same issue happened to me this morning.  I restarted the health service and the memory cleared up.  We're also at R2 so go figure.

    I was able to see the memory growing as I watched, configuration service also so I restarted that also.

  • Thank you.  But, our current system has SCOM 2007 R2 with update 3 so we don't want to re-invent the wheel. 

    Do you have any other possible recommendations? 

     

    As of now, it is stable.  This problem is hard to isolate because it keeps going up and down.  One day it will be using all the memory on the RMS, then it will just stop.

    My thought was to start uninstalling MP's until we find the issue, but even that is difficult to do. 

    Any thoughts on how we might at least try and isolate the issue?
