We recently published a new Knowledge Base article that discusses an issue where Data Warehouse jobs fail in SCSM 2012. When this problem occurs the following event is logged in the Operations Manager event log on the Data Warehouse server:

Event ID: 33502

Description:
ETL Module Execution failed:
ETL process type: Transform
