This issue occurs because pull subscriptions aren't released after idling for a long time. This causes increased leaks and eventually hit WMI quota threshold. In this situation, the pull subscriptions on a Windows Server 2012-based server never start the heartbeat timer on initial request.

Note SCVMM represents System Center 2012 Virtual Machine Manager.

Resolution

To fix this issue, we have released a hotfix for Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012.

The dates and the times for these files are listed in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). The dates and the times for these files on your local computer are displayed in your local time together with your current daylight saving time (DST) bias.

Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 file information and notes

Important Windows 8 hotfixes and Windows Server 2012 hotfixes are included in the same packages. However, hotfixes on the Hotfix Request page are listed under both operating systems. To request the hotfix package that applies to one or both operating systems, select the hotfix that is listed under "Windows 8/Windows Server 2012" on the page. Always refer to the "Applies To" section in articles to determine the actual operating system that each hotfix applies to.

  • The files that apply to a specific product, milestone (RTM, SPn), and service branch (LDR, GDR) can be identified by examining the file version numbers as shown in the following table:

    Version

    Product

    Milestone

    Service branch

    6.2.920 0.16xxx

    Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012

    RTM

    GDR

    6.2.920 0.21xxx

    Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012

    RTM

    LDR

  • GDR service branches contain only those fixes that are widely released to address widespread, critical issues. LDR service branches contain hotfixes in addition to widely released fixes.

  • The MANIFEST files (.manifest) and the MUM files (.mum) that are installed for each environment are listed separately in the "Additional file information" section. MUM, MANIFEST, and the associated security catalog (.cat) files, are very important to maintain the state of the updated components. The security catalog files, for which the attributes are not listed, are signed with a Microsoft digital signature.
