OpsMgr 2016 Agent Crashes SharePoint 2016 Site

less than 1 minute read

Today I pushed the SCOM 2016 agent to my newly installed SharePoint 2016 server via the SCOM console. My SCOM management group is on 2016 RTM UR 3.

Once the SCOM agent was installed, I could not launch SharePoint Central Admin site after a reboot. After turned off the custom error in web.config, I could see the exception:


This is caused by the known issue with SCOM 2016 agent APM component (Application Performance Monitoring). My good friend Kevin Greene has already blogged this: http://kevingreeneitblog.blogspot.com.au/2017/03/scom-2016-agent-crashing-legacy-iis.html

So to fix my issue, I followed Kevin’s instruction – reinstalled the SCOM agent using MOMAgent.msi with the "NOAPM=1" parameter.

Until the SCOM product group fixes this issue, please keep in mind this can be a potential issue when rolling out SCOM agent to IIS servers.
