MSSQL 2016: Monitoring failed

I ran into this error when using SCOM 2012 R2 for monitoring SQL 2016 and didn’t find any good solution fast on google so i decided to create one myself when i found the solution.

The error message SCOM gave me was.

After som research if found out that the run as account the agent was using tried to use c:\windows\temp to save files and it does not have access to that folder. After i gave permission to c:\windows\temp to the run as account the alert went away.
