WMI leak on Windows Server 2012 R2

There is a WMI leak on  windows server 2012 r2 DCs which renders them not so usable, generating SCOM agent scripts to fail. Multiple scripts are affected by this for example:
AD CPU Overload Script Based Test Failed to complete: The script AD LSASS CPU failed to retrieve the raw performance data for the lsass process via WMI.
The error returned was: Object required (0x1A8)

SCOMPercentageCPUTimeCounter.vbs(111,9) (null): No more threads can be created by the system.

AD Replication Monitoring: encountered a runtime error. Failed to convert to UTC time.
The error returned was: 'No more threads can be created in the system' (0x800700A4)'


HRESULT: 0x80041006

Details: Out of memory


The error returned was: 'Object required' (0x1A8)

The leak is fixed in the latest UR for Windows Server 2012 R2 May which can be found here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2955164

    I applied this patch and the other one you need in order to apply it –> 2919355, but only solved half of my DCs problems, still having the same issue on many DC after patching… Happy happy joy joy

    I hate having to patch servers because monitoring is causing problems.
    Thank you Microsoft.

    Same problem as Minakovic, WMI still appears to be unhappy after the latest round of updates. At least SCOM appears to be unhappy with it, I am still checking the servers to see if there is an actual problem there or not.
