I have heard an unconfirmed rumour that the LANDesk agent has a major issue
with the Windows WMI performance adapter service continuously starting and
stopping. We use a server monitoring solution which starts the remote WMI
service when it queries the remote host for performance data etc, and stops the
WMI service again when the query is complete. The interval at which this
happens can be as frequent as every 5 minutes. Apparently the LANDesk agent
does not like this at all and goes into a hanging state. In many cases this can
cause an entire server to hang.
Has anybody ever heard of this issue?
I am currently planning a deployment of LANDesk, and 50 Windows servers are
within the scope of the deployment. This rumour is causing me great
I do not know which version the problem existed on. My deployment will be
for LDMS 8.7 SP5.
Perhaps one of the LANDesk gurus on this forum can re-assure me or confirm
this issue for me?
