  • Question

  • Dear Team

    Microsoft Forefront client security Reporting  Console Unable to View the Reports,

    When i start the MOM Service  It says (The Mom Service on the Local Computer Started and then Stopped )

    when i checked the Event there are 2 events

    Event ID 9000

    MOM Engine of management Group ForefronClient Security failed to initialize

    Event ID 9029

    The Microsoft Operation Manager Service (MOMService.exe) was unable to run under the supplied credentials,or the Password has expired.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for the post.

    To troubleshoot this issue, please perform the following steps:

    1) Start Component Services. To do this, click Start, click Run, type dcomcnfg in the Open box, and then click OK.
    2) In Component Services, double-click Component Services, double-click Computers, double-click My Computer, and then double-click COM+ Applications.
    3) Right-click Microsoft Operations Manager Data Access Server, and then click Properties.
    4) Click the Identity tab.
    5) Type the correct password for the DAS account in the Password box and in the Confirm password box, and then click OK.
    6) Exit Component Services.

    Does it work?

    If not, please first type SetActionAccount.exe ForefrontClientSecurity -query to determine action account.

    For more information, please access this link (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb944783.aspx)


    Then type "SetActionAccount.exe ForefrontClientSecurity -set XXX administrator" (without quotes), Enter the new password. Here "XXX" was the domain name & "administrator" was the MOM Action Account

    Now try to verify if the MOM service can start.

    Hope this helps.

    Event ID 9029
    When opening either the MOM Administrator console or the MOM Operator console, you might receive the following error: "Error connecting to server: servername."


    Additionally, event ID 9029 is logged in the Application log of Event Viewer.
    Background


    This error can occur when the password for the MOM action account has been changed.
    Solution
    Use the MOM tool SetActionAccount.exe to inform MOM of the new password. The SetActionAccount.exe tool can be found in the Client Security installation folder, in the following location:
    Client Security\Server\Microsoft Operations Manager 2005 
    The tool uses the following command-line syntax:
    SetActionAccount.exe <configname> <options>

    Option    Result
    -query    Returns the current action account settings.
    -set domain username [password]    Changes the action account, setting it to the specified account. Use the computer name in place of the domain for local accounts.

     Note:
    configname is the Management Group name and must be specified. Also, you must restart the MOM service for any changes to take effect.
     Important:
    Event ID 9029 can also occur during the installation process, if insufficient permissions are granted to the accounts specified during setup. For more information, see Setup wizard issues.
