For example, the System Center Management service stops responding after the instance of SQL Server disconnects, restarts, or fails. To recover from this issue after the instance of SQL Server is available again, you must restart the System Center Management service.
Follow the steps in this section carefully. Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Before you modify the registry, back it up for restoration in case problems occur.
To resolve this issue, you can enable the automatic recovery feature in System Center 2012 Operations Manager SP1. By default, this automatic recovery feature is disabled.
To enable the automatic recovery feature on the management server, follow these steps:
- Start Registry Editor.
- Locate and then click the following registry subkey:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\System Center\2010\Common\DAL
- Create the following two registry entries:
Decimal value: 1
Decimal Value: 60
Note The DALInitiateClearPoolSeconds setting controls when the management server drops the current connection pool and when the management server tries to reestablish an SQL connection. We recommend that you set this setting to 60 seconds or more to avoid performance issues.
- Restart the System Center Management service on the management server.
