MIM Event Broker service cannot be started, and a System.Management.ManagementException: Provider failure message appears in the Windows Event Viewer.

Affected software

  • MIM Event Broker


The MIM Event Broker service cannot be started on a machine due to a provider error.


This issue usually occurs because of an issue with the WMI provider.

Restarting the WMI service or the machine itself should resolve the issue. If not, follow the following instructions on Regasm.exe http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/tzat5yw6.aspx for System.Management.Instrumentation.dll, as mentioned on http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb961987.aspx.
