Spent much of today wrangling with System Center Operations Manager and my new backup WINS server. Thereâ€™s a list of hotfixes that are pre-requisites for running OpsManager, including the agent, on Server 2008. One of the prereqâ€™s requires .NET framework, so Iâ€™m ignoring that one (KB954049). My primary WINS server, also Server Core, has the OpsMgr Agent deployed just fine. Iâ€™ll figure it out, but my forehead is sore from bang on the brick wall.
Also noticed an occasional WINS EventID 4224, which represents a WINS db error which â€œThis may or may not be a serious error.â€ I dug deeper, following the steps in KB168595 to take the twoâ€™s complement of the error value reported in the event to find the Jet Database error. The article links to a list or errors for the JetPack utility (not the Jet DB header fileâ€”Iâ€™m not downloading an SDK for this), the error cited in the example corresponds with the error code listed here. So my error code means â€œJetInit already called.â€ These codes also align with the current Extensible Storage Engine error doc at MSDN.
Since the service is functioning fine, Iâ€™ll call this a cosmetic error for now. But I wanted to record the detective work for posterity.
Also did some network troubleshooting and dope-slapped the WDS server. And spent much time banging head on Ops manager.
Glen Elder passed away. I didnâ€™t know him personally, but as a member of the LGBTQA community, I felt his presence. He will be missed.
