Server MP: Interface Status changes

  • Hi there!

    I'm experiencing the following situation on System running Windows Server 2012 and monitored by SCOM 2012:

    Some of the NICs are changing their status frequently, others are unhealthy all the time and others are healthy all the time.

    What I found either are plenty of 21402 events in the SCOM event log with the following details:

    Forced to terminate the following process started at 14:44:38 because it ran past the configured timeout 300 seconds.

    Command executed: "C:\Windows\system32\cscript.exe" /nologo "DellServerNICUnitoper1.vbs" {myid} {myid} $Config/Computer$ OPS LAN3

    Workflow name: Dell.WindowsServer.EnrichedNIUnit.OperStatus.PollUnitMonitor

    Instance name: OPS LAN3

    Instance ID: {myid}

    As you can see, the parameter "$Config/Computer$" has not been replaced by a value. Maybe that is a problem. Further you can see, that the NICs name (in that case and in the others as well) has a space character "OPS LAN3".

    I do have the following NICs:

    OPS LAN 1-8 (NIC Team members)

    OPS LAN Team

    SAN NIC1

    SAN NIC2

    VM SAN1

    VM SAN2

    vEthernet (CSV)

    vEthernet (LM)

    vEthernet (MGMT)

     

    Im getting that for all NICs that are member of a teaming and from SAN NIC1. And as it seems only on WS2012.

    From my PoV it seems that I have to issues: one is the discovery above (currently OPS LAN8 disappeared from SCOM) and the frequent status changes.

    Any idea regarding that?

    Thanks in advance,

    Patrick

  • Zero replies? Really?

  • Hi Patrick Apologies for the silence...We had been looking to answer this after investigation on a repro - we are not there yet :( ... we will be validating the MP against Windows 2012/SCOM 2012 SP1 combo in the next release of the MP. As you have pointed out in your analysis, the parameter "$Config/Computer$" has not been replaced by a value. Could you please clarify: are you seeing the problem only when the name has spaces? 2) You mentioned that it seems to be Windows 2012 specific; does it work for other versions? 3) What version of SCOM are you using? 2012 SP1? Regards Thomas
  • Hi Thomas!

    Here is my feedback so far:

    1) will check ASAP.

    2) no, not yet. We currently have 2x Server 2012 running Hyper-V and the error is occuring only there.

    3) yes, 2012 SP1

    Next version means what in terms of timeframe?

    Thanks,

    Patrick

  • Regarding 1):

    As it seems (!), the monitor is working (but maybe not as expected). I come to this conclusion because I see, that the monitor "Physical Network Interface (Enriched) Operational Status Periodic Monitor" for "SAN NIC2" on Server31 changes it's health state from time to time.

    The last 13 changes where:

    Time Operational State

    3/19/2013 3:12 PM Warning

    Further, all other NICs are shown in the HE.

    On the other hand: on Server32 I can't see any NIC (but will investigate in that behavior by my own).

    Cheers,

    Patrick

  • OK... no change after renaming the NICs to names without blanks.

    And: Server32 shows the NIC again (after agent restart?).

  • Still we do have this issue, in the meantime MP version 5.1

    I can't believe that this is a unknown issue? Really?

    Thanks,

    Patrick

  • I am also getting this issue, also Hyper-V 2012 with SCOM 2012 SP1. Been happening for a while but only just getting round to investigating it. Error I am seeing below. Loads of free memory and CPUs are barely pushed. No AV installed on the Hyper-V cluster nodes. Getting this across all nodes. Other MPs seem to be working fine. Is there any sign of an updated MP that may resolve this?

  • I've been having this issue for a long time and even on Version 6 of the Dell SCOM MP.

    Is there a fix/workaround for this?

    Thx,

    John Bradshaw

  • Anyone from Dell?

    Thx

  • I'm getting similar error on my Hyper-V servers:

    Forced to terminate the following process started at 9:38:19 AM because it ran past the configured timeout 300 seconds.

  • Any updates to this issue?

    I am having the same issue on SCOM 2012 R2 and Dell M620 blades in an M1000e Chassis.
