SCOM Agent crashing RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We had an issue on one 2008 R2 sp1 server where SCOM agent keeps crashing with error message : "A monitoring host is unresponsive or has crashed.  The status code for the host failure was 2164195371" with Event ID 4000. Also, the event ID 1103 for rules/monitors failed and got unloaded. I did uninstalled and reinstalled SCOM agent but the issue persists. Could someone please advise how to fix it?

  • Do you see a .net crash in the application log? like a 1023 I think or something like that.  This could be an agent that is overloaded with workflow data, and thus it's running out of memory and crashing itself.  However, I do remember getting a hotfix to fix an issue on W2K8 where the agent was crashing because of an issue with how SCOM was collecting performance data, it was a while ago, so I forget exactly what it was, but I would see 4000 events, and 1023's from .net in my application log.

  • Hi Blake,

    I didn't see any event id 1023 in application logs. Event ID 1103 and 4000 is generating in OM logs with below description:

    Event ID 1103: "Summary: 223 rule(s)/monitor(s) failed and got unloaded, 223 of them reached the failure limit that prevents automatic reload. Management group "SCOM_AEGIS_PROD". This is summary only event, please see other events with descriptions of unloaded rule(s)/monitor(s)."

    Event ID 4000: "A monitoring host is unresponsive or has crashed.  The status code for the host failure was 2164195371."
