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.

SCOM 2012: Management group with id {} is not healthy. Some system rules failed to load

I recently ran into this problem on a server that was monitored by System Center 2012 Operations Manager Sp1. The error is not that straight forward. Se below

The solution for this problem was not that hard. Go to the server that has the problem.

  1. Stop the service System Center management
  2. Go to the folder C:\Program Files\System Center Operations Manager\Agent
  3. Rename/delete the folder Health Service state
  4. Start the service again
  5. Run a recalculate/reset health in System Center Operations manager console.

I hope this will help someone that runs into the same problem as i did.

UPDATE 2014-12-02

I noticed that on a 2012 R2 UR4 SCOM installation step 2 is incorrect. The path to the Health Service State was C:\Program Files\Microsoft Monitoring Agent\Agent and the service on step 1 is called Microsoft Monitoring Agent
