SC 2012 OpsMgr – GSM Troubleshooting quick note (#sysctr #scom)

Cameron Fuller has published an excellent blog on GSM troubleshooring (Determining what is going on with GSM using OpsMgr event collection and views (#SCOM, #SYSCTR)). On a quick side note I found myself in the condition of having to troubleshoot GSM and workflow tracing cannot be used. If you try to use workflow tracing for any GSM generated monitor/rule you get the following error:

Log Name:      Operations Manager

Source:        HealthService

Date:          2/6/2013 9:22:42 AM

Event ID:      4509

Task Category: Health Service

Level:         Error

Keywords:      Classic

User:          N/A



The constructor for the managed module type “Microsoft.SystemCenter.Cloud.OutsideInUnitModule.VSWebTestCondition” threw an exception. This module was running in rule “Microsoft.SystemCenter.Omonline.OutsideIn.VSWebTest.Performance.CollectTransactionResponseTime” running for instance “UGISC [US : CA-Los Angeles]” with id:”{F88050C8-B7C6-B36E-1309-5E344BCFB1BA}” in management group “XXXXXXX”.

The exception text is:

Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.HealthService.ModuleException: Invalid Xml Config received. —> System.Xml.XmlException: ‘None’ is an invalid XmlNodeType. Line 1, position 284.

   at System.Xml.XmlReader.ReadStartElement(String name)
