'Script or executable failed to run' - Part 4

In reference to an earlier posting about possible issues with the most recent DNS MP, found here, there might be another cause and - more important - a solution for it.

Run from the command-prompt on the server experiencing these issues these commands:

Command 1: CD %windir%\system32\wbem
Command 2: mofcomp dnsprov.mof

Restart afterwards the related services:
- DNS
- WMI
- Operations Manager Health Service

A customer of mine came with this solution and until now all looks well.

a number of WMI errors that exhibit as a result of the queries issued by the DNS MP (those queries to the Microsft_DNS classes...) are fixed by this WMI fix http://support.microsoft.com/kb/933061/en-us(you can find more track of this here http://www.eggheadcafe.com/software/aspnet/33831024/dns-2003-wmi-probe-module.aspx )

Hi Daniella.

Thanks for your comment.

In an earlier blogposting (http://thoughtsonopsmgr.blogspot.com/2008/12/wmi-and-windows-2003-server.html) I also mentioned this KB article.

However, sometimes eventhough this KB has been applied, the problem still keeps coming back.
