Earlier today one of my management servers quit receiving new configuration and all agents reporting to it also quit updating their configuration. I got the event 21023 every 5 minutes in the Operations Manager log :
Log Name: Operations ManagerSource: OpsMgr ConnectorDate: 20-10-2010 14:58:00Event ID: 21023Task Category: NoneLevel: InformationKeywords: ClassicUser: N/AComputer: xxxxx.xxx.xxDescription:OpsMgr has no configuration for management group XXXX and is requesting new configuration from the Configuration Service.
All of my other Management servers had no issues and functioned as expected.
I logged onto the failing management server and tried the following with no luck:
There are no entries in the event log indicating any sort of problem.
So before going through the extreme measures of reinstalling or applying updates again, I turned the attention to the RMS.
After that the RMS download all the configuration files and management packs as expected. I then restarted the System Center Management Service on the failing MS and it started downloading and everything works again.
The only explanation is that a few days ago a MP was updated and maybe this triggered the failure.
The HealthService edb can get corrupt - and cause this issue. Have you applied support.microsoft.com/.../981263 ? (non-issue if on 2008R2)
Thank you very much.
That RMS part was indeed important.
So what happens when you delete the folder on the RMS and it is created but is empty?
