20-07-2009 Update: Unfortunately increasing the WMI buffers doesn’t always help. So as a workaround a scheduled restart of the WMI-service can be created.
Many OpsMgr users are familiar with this Alert:
WMI Probe Module Failed Execution. Object enumeration failed. Query: 'Select Name, Shutdown, Paused from MicrosoftDNS_Zone'. HRESULT: 0x80041001.Details: Generic failure
I already blogged about it, thinking the recompiling of DNS MOF would do the trick. However, it didn’t. After some weeks the same alerts came back.
Gladly Kevin Holman blogged about it and it seems like it he has found multiple ways to troubleshoot it for good. For me the only thing left to do was adding more WMI buffer space as he describes in his blog.
Here are the related blog postings of Kevin Holman to be found:
