The Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) 2005 agent logs the following events in the Microsoft Windows NT Application event log. The events typically occur after a new agent is deployed, and the link between the agent and Management Server is slow.
Event Type: Error
Event Type: Information
This problem may occur if the agent does not respond to a Management Server request within one second. If the agent takes more than one second to respond, the Management Server closes the connection to the agent. For example, this problem may occur when a new agent is downloading new rules. You may experience this problem more frequently on agents that connect to a Management Server over a wide area network (WAN).

To install this hotfix
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section. This problem was first corrected in Microsoft Operations Manager 2005 Service Pack 1.
After you install this hotfix, the connection time-out value on the Management Server is increased from one second to fifteen seconds. The new default value resolves the symptoms in most situations. Therefore, no additional action is typically necessary after you install the hotfix. However, the symptoms may still occur on slow WAN connections. If you continue to experience this problem after you apply this hotfix, you can use a new registry value to increase the time-out value. The new registry value is named ServerIOTimeoutMS and is implemented with this hotfix.
You must manually create the ServerIOTimeoutMS value. If this registry value does not exist, the Management Server uses the default value of 15,000 milliseconds (ms), or 15 seconds. To create the ServerIOTimeoutMS registry value and to increase the default time-out value, follow these steps on each Management Server that is experiencing the problem:
