After almost 2 months I remembered that I have blog to write.Lot of things happened in between, but couple of days ago Microsoft released fix for WMI health monitoring issues. I will not go to much in detail what happened there, but symptoms you have look like on the picture below and error you see in alerts is WMI is unhealthy. Error can be true in some cases! Bu if you have installed this fix and error is still there something is for sure wrong.
