WMI Probe Module Failed Execution

Sometimes this Alert (warning) - from the DNS MP - will pop-up in SCOM:
Object enumeration failed Query: 'Select Name, Shutdown, Paused from MicrosoftDNS_Zone' HRESULT: 0x80041001
Eventhough one might think it is the DNS MP which goes wrong, there is a bigger change that WMI on that server is the real culprit.

How to solve it? Look here for an earlier blogposting of mine about it, or here to download a hotfix which makes WMI on W2K03 (SP1 & SP2) servers more robust.

After applying the hotfix the WMI Probe Module Failed Execution Alerts are in most cases gone.
