Event ID - 9098

Event Id9098
DescriptionThe MAD Monitoring thread was unable to read its configuration from the DS, error <error code>.
Event InformationAlthough Exchange 2000 appears to be functioning correctly, one or more of the following event ID messages is logged in the Application event log
CAUSE: This issue occurs because the monitoring thread that is run by the System Attendant service (Mad.exe) cannot query Microsoft Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) for the state of any of the following items:
Cluster resources
CPU usage information
Instances of the ExchangeLink class or other classes provided by the Exchange WMI provider (Exwmi.dll)

The errors may be caused by one of the following issues:
Corruption in the WMI infrastructure
Transient problems with the WMI infrastructure
Network connectivity issues

To identify the exact cause of the event, see the error code in the "Description" section of the event. For example, event ID 9102 with the error 0x80010108 translates to RPC_E_DISCONNECTED. This error means that the remote procedure call (RPC) connection was lost, possibly because of network connectivity issues.

RESOLUTION If these events occur occasionally, they can be safely ignored. However, if they occur frequently (for example, every five minutes), you should investigate the cause of the event. To do so, follow these steps: Make sure that WMI is installed correctly. For additional information about WMI, see Windows 2000 Online Help. Use the Windows Management Instrumentation Tester (Wbemtest.exe) to make sure that WMI is responding, the Exchange 2000 namespace still exists, the appropriate class exists, and the Exchange WMI provider can enumerate instances of that class. Wbemtest.exe is installed in the %windir%\system32\Wbem folder in your Windows system folder. For more information about how to use Wbemtest, see Windows 2000 Online Help. Check network connectivity.
