Server 2008 w/ Hyper-V - WMI keeps breaking [message #163311] Thu, 28 May 2009 12:13 Go to next message

I have a situation where my Server 2008 Hyper-V server stops responding to
WQL queries, where a standard query such as
select * from Win32_PerfRawData_PerfDisk_LogicalDisk
results in the response
Access Denied: 80041017

Rebooting the server temporarly resolves the issue. I've noticed that this
typically happens on the server which is hosting our VMs at the time. We
have two Hyper-V servers where one hosts 8 VMs, the other is there as a
standby. Occaisionally we'll move the VMs back and forth to perform server
maintenance as needed. The machine hosting the VMs is always the machine
whose WMI fails. There are no resource issues, each server has 16GB RAM
with a few GB free, and at least 33% free space on each drive.

I ran the winmgmt /verifyrepository command and everything came up clean.

I have noticed an error in the App log which seems to correlate to when this
issue surfaces.
Error 10: Event filter with query "select * from __instancemodificationevent
within 30 where targetinstance isa
'Win32_PerfFormattedData_PerfDisk_LogicalDisk' and
targetinstance.PercentFreeSpace < 1 and targetinstance.Name != '_Total'"
could not be reactivated in namespace "//./root/CIMV2" because of error
0x80041002. Events cannot be delivered through this filter until the problem
is corrected.

Every reference I've seen to this error are related to WMI database
corruption, however the test I performed indicates it isn't corrupted. I'm
going in circles! Anyone have any ideas?

Well, there's always SP2. ;-)

I really wish Microsoft would remove the "... get expert answers to your
technical questions within one business day - guarenteed" from the hover
text over the "Managed Newsgroups" link in Technet. In my years as a
Technet subscriber I've never actually seen this happen.. and it's been
weeks without a response.


So I ask again... Does anyone have an idea why WMI keeps breaking on this
server?

SP2 is not an option?
