Challenge

  • In the Veeam Management Pack for System Center UI, some monitored objects are grey or missing altogether.
  • Standard troubleshooting steps do not help. The SCOM agent log on the Collector server contains the following error:
    WMI Error: 0x8004106C
    
  • When you try to use the WBEMTEST utility, you get the same WMI error, you get the following message:
    WMI: Quota violation
