Two MS's often goes to Greyed out state RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    We have 10+MS and 10+ GW, out of which only two servers goes to greyed out state. It always happens even after I doing restart of SCOM service and clearing out SCOM health state folder. Please let me know what else I need to check?

  • You should check Operation Manager event log for anything suspicious on these servers

  • Hello,

    Do you remember any changes done recently(any Management pack import) after which this issue has started to happen? Also check how many agents are reporting to the specific 2 MS, are they high?

    Also check if there is any data drop by checking Operations Manager event logs?  Also mention the scom version.

    Check below link as well-

  • Hi CryAz,

    I find only two Event ID's being generated on the MS. Apart from this everything is fine. Please note that this is the primary management server which has 600+ agents tagged to this.

  • There are 600+ agents being reported to this affected MS. No recent changes have been done. This is the primary management server.

  • In the other affected management server, I could see 4506 event ID being generated often. Please guide me.

  • Are these management servers in the same datacenter as the SCOM DBs? What is the ping latency?

  • They are in two different locations. As other servers are working fine, ping latency is good.

  • Are these servers members of a Linux or Network resource pool?

  • I didn't ask for "good" - how many ms?

  • We have 17 MS in our environment including 4 GW servers.

  • These two servers are part of all management server resource pool and Windows resource pool.

  • Sorry, meant what how many ms (milliseconds) is the ping time from one of these management servers to the DB servers?

  • Hello There,

    Make sure you have connectivity with 5ms if this is grater than 5ms then you have to look into it. Since as per MS recommendation latency between should have 5ms. And are there MS physical sever or Virtual and do let us know if this happens on particular timing(s).

  • These are virtual machines. 

    Ping latency is <1 ms. Which is good enough right.

  • Hmmmm....

    Indeed Its good Sir.

    Could you please let me know whether they are Virtual or Physical server.

    Also do you have any error log now, be in it Event Viewer, and on Console.
