Windows Server 2012 R2 Server Manager Fails Automatic Refresh After Upgrade

After recently upgrading my server from Windows Server 2008 R2 to Windows Server 2012 R2, Server Manger would fail automatic refresh.

When I expanded on any of the effected services the error box read  “Online – Data Retrieval failed”.

The following is the result of clicking on the yellow notification flag and expanding details.

For more information I went to Event Viewer-Application and Services Logs-Microsoft-Windows-ServerManager-ManagementProvider operational log.  There was the following warning

“Generic failure querying the localized name for channel: Microsoft-Windows-DxpTaskRingtone-Analytic [hResult = Function failed during execution., hLastResult = The system cannot find the file specified.]”.

When I attempted to open the DxpTaskRingtone Operational log it reported the log was either corrupted or not present.  After doing some research I found this log is created from the following key in the registry.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WINEVT\Channels\Microsoft-Windows-DxpTaskRingtone/Analytic

Registry values are below.

OwningPublisher”=”{3df0c2c1-5a04-4966-9790-df6ef0ccde9c}”
Type”=dword:00000002

The registry values did not look corrupted but I backed up the key and then deleted it.  Refreshed Server Manager and everything is green.

I restored the key to ensure that this was the root cause of my problem and Server Manage failed the refresh.

Hope this helps.

Until next time – Ride Safe!
