Performance Metrics failure (WMI) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to run the Performance metrics wizard on on a 2000 Server using MAPS on a XP Pro machine. As far as I can tell I have the 2000 Server set up the exact same way as another server that had no problems. The wizard fails to connect to WMI, but can get the performance counters just fine. I have the WMI service started and WMI driver extensions started. Performance monitoring, Remote registry, and RPC are on as well. There are no firewall issues. Any thoughts on what I am missing to get this to work would be appreciated.

  • What error are you seeing in the Excel reports for the machine that is failing?

    You could try using WMI Diagnosis (see http://blogs.msdn.com/wmi/archive/2006/05/12/596266.aspx) against the failing machine to see if that gives you more information. 

    Also, a simple test we would do internally would be to run WBEMTEST against the machine that's failing to see what the issue is.  Just run a simple query from WBEMTEST like 'select * from win32_Processor' and see if it returns successfully.

  • Hello and sorry it has taken so long to get back,

    The excel sheet says everything was successful, but like I said the collection works fine. The only problem is that WMI fails to connect, so a lot of information is marked as Unknown. I haven't had a chance to run that diagnostic utility you mentioned, but i did look at the wbemcore.log file. Here is what it had:

    (Tue Aug 12 16:07:45 2008) : Error 80041002 occured executing queued request

    Any ideas would be helpful. Thank you again.
