Rule Knowledgebase

Summary

When you use System Center Operations Manager 2007 to monitor Microsoft Windows Server 2003-based domain controller that has the OpsMgr Active Directory Management Pack installed, the OpsMgr Replication health monitoring may fail.

When this problem occurs, the Windows Server 2003-based domain controller reports an error event back to the OpsMgr Management Server, and the following events appear in the Alerts pane of the OpsMgr Operations Console:

The script ‘AD Replication monitoring’ encountered a runtime error. Failed to determine whether the WMI replication provider is installed. The error returned was: ‘Invalid Parameter’ (0x80041008)

AD Remote Topology Discovery cannot determine whether the WMI Replication Provider is installed. The error returned was: ‘Invalid Parameter’ (0x80041008).

Causes

This problem occurs when the Replprov.dll file tries to access a pointer that is not valid. The Replprov.dll file is used by the OpsMgr Active Directory Management Pack to retrieve Active Directory replication-related information, including replication status. When this problem occurs, the Replprov.dll file cannot determine the replication status of the domain controller, and the error messages are generated.
