VMM Host Not Responding Error 2912

I recently ran in the a error where all hyper-v host in a cluster ended up with host no responding in Virtual Machine Manager 2012 SP1. , reinstalling the agent restarting Windows Remote Management didn’t help.

Host is Windows Server 2012


Error (2912)
An internal error has occurred trying to contact the server: :


Unknown error (0xc0000bbb)

Recommended Action
Check that WS-Management service is installed and running on server. For more information use the command “winrm helpmsg hresult”. If  is a host/library/update server or a PXE server role then ensure that VMM agent is installed and running.



VMM Error 25013

Windows Management Instrumentation has stopped WMIPRVSE.EXE because a quota reached a warning value. Quota: HandleCount  Value: 81792 Maximum value: 4096 WMIPRVSE PID: 7160 Providers hosted in this process: %systemroot%\system32\wbem\cimwin32.dll, %systemroot%\system32\wbem\wmiprov.dll, C:\Windows\System32\wbem\WmiPerfClass.dll

So WMI is unhealthy on all the hosts , after a bit trial and error I ended up with rebuilding the performance counters with lodctr /R

And removing a old MPIO driver that was making life miserably for WMI



After removal and reboot all hosts are back in business


But  then again moving VM’s from host to host is fast Smiley
