Other Symptoms

When you try to stop the run of the MIM MA you get an error.

Root Cause

The option "run the management agent in a separate process" is activated.

Explanation

This is by design, as this option is deprecated and should not be used.

Resolution

Uncheck the option "Run this management agent in a separate process" from the "Configure extensions" item in the management agent properties.
