Last night, someone left a comment on the my post for the OpsMgr Self Maintenance MP V184.108.40.206 and advised a configuration in the Data Warehouse staging tables row count performance collection rules is causing issues with the Exchange Correlation service – which is a part of the Exchange MP. This issue was previously identified for other MPs: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/f724545d-90a3-42e6-950e-72e14ac0bd9d/exchange-correlation-service-cannot-connect-to-rms?forum=operationsmanagermgmtpacks
In a nutshell, looks like the Exchange Correlation service does not like rules that have category set to “None”.
I would have never picked it up in my environment because I don’t have Exchange in my lab therefore no Exchange MP configured.
Anyways, I have updated the category for these rules in both the Self Maintenance MP as well as the OMS Add-On MP, changed them from “None” to “PerformanceCollection”. I have updated the download from TY Consulting’s website. The current version is now 220.127.116.11. So if you are have already downloaded v.18.104.22.168 and you are using Exchange MP in your environment, you might want to download the updated version again from the same spot HERE.
