Ops Manager – PowerShell script failed

I was getting PowerShell script failed errors for one of our servers being monitored via SCOM. The error was along these lines:

Not having much of an idea as to what the matter is (but having a hunch that it must be to do with performance monitors) I took a look at the events logs on the server and found entries like these:

There were many more like this (I found them all in the Administrative Events). To fix this I rebuilt the performance counters.

One caveat: the instruction in the link above ask us to go to “c:\windows\system32” and run a command “lodctr /R“. This gave me an error: “Error: Unable to rebuild performance counter setting from system backup store, error code is 2”.

From a forum post I learnt that going to “c:\windows\syswow64” instead does the trick. So keep that in mind. :)
