When you try to add a host to System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008, it fails with the following message:
An internal error has occurred trying to contact an agent on the server.domain.com server.
(Unknown error (0xc0000bbf))
Ensure the agent is installed and running. Ensure the WS-Management service is installed and running, then restart the agent.
In the Application log on the host machine that you’re trying to add, the following events may be logged:
WMI, Event 10
Event filter with query "select * from __instancemodificationevent within 30 where targetinstance isa 'Win32_PerfFormattedData_PerfDisk_LogicalDisk' and targetinstance.PercentFreeSpace < 1 and targetinstance.Name != '_Total'" could not be reactivated in namespace "//./root/CIMV2" because of error 0xc0000bbf. Events cannot be delivered through this filter until the problem is corrected.
WMI, Event 5612:
Windows Management Instrumentation has stopped WMIPRVSE.EXE because a quota reached a warning value. Quota: HandleCount Value: 12853 Maximum value: 12288 WMIPRVSE PID: 7232
