Description

The MIM Event Broker service cannot be started, and a System.Management.ManagementException: Out of memory message appears in the Windows Event Viewer.

Affected software

  • MIM Event Broker

Symptom

The MIM Event Broker service cannot be started on a machine due to an out of memory exception.

Solution

This issue usually occurs because of a known issue with the win32_service WMI provider on Windows Server 2008 R2. More information can be found here.

Restarting the WMI service or the machine itself should resolve the issue.
