SCOM R1, Windows 2008 R2, IIS 7.5 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have encoutered the issue described in post


    where SOM 2007 R1 failed to monitor IIS 7.5 application pools running using ApplicationPoolIdentity.

    The documented error in Operation manager log file is 

    Failed to retrieve one or more properties of application pool 'DefaultAppPool'. Discovery will continue for other application pools.

    Error: 0x8000ffff 
    Details: Catastrophic failure

    If I change the identify of the given application pool from ApplicationPoolIdentity to NetworkService them the error is gone.

    Is there any fix for this issue. By changing the application pool idenity we loss the advantage of IIS7.5 where each application running under specific account with no access to other processes.

    I would like to add that I have installed SystemCenterOperationsManager2007-SP1-KB957123-X86-X64-IA64-ENU on the RMS and the relevant server to enable monitoring of IIS 7.5
