Object enumeration failed Query: 'Select EventLogLevel from MicrosoftDNS_Server' HRESULT: 0x80041001

The DNS MP can generate the above mentioned error, even when KB933061 has been applied, found here. I blogged about this KB earlier, found here.

The Alert name is ‘WMI Probe Module Failed Execution’. The real cause is not the MP itself but DNS and WMI on the mentioned server.

The solution for this is straightforward. In an earlier blogposting of mine I already mentioned this solution for another issue with DNS/WMI as well, to be found here.

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:
- Operations Manager Health Service

if you are on windows 2003, a number of those WMI errors when querying the "MicrosoftDNS_*" classes are also a result of bugs in the WMI service itself - not the repository or the classes - and they are fixed by installing the update here

Hi Daniele.

Thanks for your comment.

I think my posting wasn't complete so I will change it.

The by you mentioned KB article was already applied, but still the errors occured.

Best regards,
