SCOM: Agent error Keyset does not exist

An issue to be aware of when you package your SCOM agent with your server build image is that when the server is built a certificate is generated for the agent to use, this certificate resides in the Operation Manager Certificate Store. If the server is then renamed due to it having a temporary build name you will see the below error in your Operations Manager event log.

Event: 7022
Source: HealthService

The Health Service has downloaded secure configuration for management group <MG Name>, and processing the configuration failed with error code Keyset does not exist(0x80090016).

Re-installing the agent will fix this issue but there is a simpler solution by Gerrie Louw, open your certificate MMC, navigate to the Operation Manager Store and delete the certificate, then restart your Healthservice.

The symptoms can occur with all versions of the SCOM / MMA agent under the agent packaged with a server image scenario.


SCOM: Guided walkthrough for troubleshooting UNIX and Linux agent discovery

Microsoft has just released a Guided Walkthrough for troubleshooting UNIX and Linux agent discovery issues in System Center 2012 Operations Manager.

It is available here:KB2993901

It’s nice to see this type of guide being released, cross-platform monitoring with SCOM is still not very common and it can be tricky to get right.
