NetworkAdapterCheck.vbs fails on Windows 2000

Problem Here’s my summary of the problems with the NetworkAdapterCheck.vbs script in the Windows Server 2000 Operating System Management Pack för Operations Manager 2007 that is causing the failed to create System.PropertyBagData error i wrote about earlier. This information in also available on Symptoms This “research” comes from getting an obscene amounts of Script or Executable Failed to run in the Operations Console. Each time it was the NetworkAdapterCheck.vbs script that could not create PropertyBagData. The error message copied from one of the alerts looks like this: The process started at 14:29:26 failed to create System.PropertyBagData, no errors detected in the output. The process exited with 0Command executed: "C:WINNTsystem32cscript.exe" /nologo "NetworkAdapterCheck.vbs" MASKEDCOMPUTERNAME 0 false true falseWorking Directory: C:Program FilesSystem Center Operations Manager 2007Health Service StateMonitoring Host Temporary Files 2882781One or more workflows were affected by this.Workflow name: Microsoft.Windows.Server.2000.NetworkAdapter.NetworkAdapterConnectionHealthInstance name: 0Instance ID: {F4C478D3-38E5-8C29-3957-E3B7F486216E}Management group: MASKED This error repeats almost as often as the script is scheduled to run and appears on almost every Windows 2000 server. Probable Cause I am not really sure, but after a quite a bit of troubleshooting I am pretty sure it all boils down to a malformed WMI-query. What I basically did was to extract the script from the MP and dry-run it to see if I could find anything obvious, which I didn’t. Since I didn’t have a good debugging too available, like in PrimalScript, I added the VBS equivalent of old-school printf debugging. I basically added wscript.echo "Line XX:" & Err.Number

Clearing Disabled Discovery in OpsMgr 2007

Jonathan Almquist has posted (a while ago) an article on how to clear discovered objects after you have disabled the discovery rules in OpsMgr that I think deserves a notion. Read more about it at Jonathan Almquist on Operations Manager : Remove-DisabledMonitoringObject.
