The System Center Management service terminated with service-specific error %%-2147467259

5:19 am in Uncategorized by alkin

I had the following issue on one of my servers

“The System Center Management service terminated with service-specific error %%-2147467259” when I wanted to start my Healthservice.

When searching the internet I found the following blogpost http://blogs.technet.com/b/smsandmom/archive/2008/04/30/opsmgr-2007-healthservice-service-fails-to-start-with-25362-warning.aspx  . The blogposts says that the State directory registry key can be corrupt but that was fine in my case.

But at the end of the blogpost I found my solution:

This error can be caused by the WindowsAccountLockDownSD Key in at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\HealthService\Parameters\Management Group\<Management Group Name Here> being invalid or non-present.  And indeed, that was my issue: the WindowsAccountLockDownSD Key was missing on my server.

The easiest way to resolve the issue with the Windows AccountLockDownSD key is to export the registry key from a similar, working system and then import it in to the registry of the server experiencing the problem.  Once this is complete the HealthService should start successfully.

System Center Advisor Changing the upload frequency

11:36 am in Uncategorized by alkin

Most of the configuration like changing upload frequency is done in the registry.

The registry keys for the gateway are stored in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\SystemCenterAdvisor\Gateway and the registry keys for the agent are stored in HKLM\Software\Microsoft\SystemCenterAdvisor\Agent. If you change anything in the registry keys you will have to restart the System Center Management services on the agent and the System Center Advisor Gateway services on the gateway server.

By default the gateway only uploads once a day to the Advisor cloud services. Now for demo purposes I’m going to change it to every 12hours.

Have a look at the following site http://onlinehelp.microsoft.com/en-us/advisor/ff962521.aspx that describes all the registry keys.

 

Thanks,

System Center Advisor configuring data upload

11:39 am in Uncategorized by alkin

By default, Advisor will enable the gateway to automatically upload collected data from your server to Advisor.

To disable automatic data upload, add the following registry entry:

Key = HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SystemCenterAdvisor\Gateway\
RegEntry name = BlockUpload
Entry type = REG_DWORD

To enable automatic data upload, remove the above registry entry (if present).

The collected data from agents can be accessed on the gateway machine in the folder located at: <GatewayDataRoot>\Mailboxes, where <GatewayDataRoot> is the value of the registry key located at HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SystemCenterAdvisor\Gateway. The data is stored in a folder specific to each agent, and named after the ID of the agent. This data will be removed from the directory after upload to Advisor by default, or if specified, will be archived for a period of time as specified by in the Archive Period registry key in the same location. The agentID value for a given agent can be found in the following registry entry on the machine running the agent:

Key = HKLM\Software\Microsoft\SystemCenterAdvisor
RegEntry name = agentID
Entry type = REG_SZ

By default, Advisor will enable the agent to automatically transfer locally collected data to your gateway.

To disable automatic data upload, add the following registry entry:

Key = HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SystemCenterAdvisor\Agent\
RegEntry name = BlockUpload
Entry type = REG_DWORD

To enable automatic data upload, remove the above registry entry (if present).
