Registry tweaks for SCOM measure twice cut once


Hi all,

Wanted to call out something that happened recently with a customer.

When modifying registry ensure that you double or triple check any changes made: Registry Tweaks  (note Kevin's useful and handy reg add commands - that helps prevent below issue from occurring in first place).

A customer had inadvertently added the dalinitiateclearpool new qword (instead of dword) and then the sdk service would not stay running.

Here are the errors you may see on your management server with incorrect keys created.

26399 and 29380

Scroll down and note in the 29380 event log description we see "DataAccessRegistry.ReadInitiateClearPool" tipping us off on the issue. Simply delete the qword value and create new dword value and then the sdk service runs as designed.
