Discovery Wizard is running for ever


SCOM Discovery Wizard sürekli çalışıyor ve herhangi bir sonuç olmuyor ise aşağıdaki çözümleri uygulayabilirsiniz.



When the Discovery Wizard is running for ever, there are multiple possible causes for it. This posting is about how to identify these causes and how to solve them. 


  1. SQL Broker Service is not running 
    This is the most common cause why the Discovery Wizard keeps on running without showing any result. How to identify it and how to solve it, is to be found on these web pages: 
  2. Health Service Store on the RMS has gone corrupt 
    I have never seen this myself, but a person I know bumped into this issue. On his RMS the HealthService store(~:\Program Files\System Center Operations Manager 2007\Health Service State\Health Service Store\HealthServiceStore.edb) had gone corrupt. The file itself had grown to a size of +700 MBs and many log files were found as well. So he recycled it and afterwards all was fine again. I have contacted Microsoft about this issue and as it turns out, there is an issue with the Jet DB Engine, present on any kind of Windows Server OS. In order to solve this a hotfix has been released by Microsoft:;en-us;981263

    How to recycle it? Just stop the Health Service on the RMS, RENAME the folder ~:\Program Files\System Center Operations Manager 2007\Health Service State to (~:\Program Files\System Center Operations Manager 2007\Health Service State_OLD (so there is always a way back!!!) and start the Health Service again.


Hopefully this posting aids in troubleshooting the endless running Discovery process.
