RMS grayed out and server discovery failed

1 minute read

After I installed my RMS and OpsmgrDB on two different servers my root management server went gray and every 10 minutes or so I receive an alert stating the RMS is unavailable.  Usually these close within a minute but some times take up to 10 minutes. 

Below is the alert I receive.

Alert: Root Management Server Unavailable.

Alert description: The root management server (Healthservice) has stopped
heartbeating soon after Fri, 01 Feb 2008 23:17:29 GMT. This adversely affects
all availability calculation for the entire management group.



Also got the following error when I wanted to discover and install agents on my server:

“An exception was thrown while processing LaunchDiscovery for session id uuid:57e9b453-4e4f-465c-9c48-c8d7d209e747;id=5.  Exception Message: The creator of this fault did not specify a Reason.
Full Exception: System.ServiceModel.FaultException`1″




I checked the time on my RMS Server and on the SQL server and there was a 3 minute delay!


The resolution was to resync the time on both servers with the following command



After the resync everything went fine!! My rms went green and I could discover and install my agents again!!
