When using Quest Spotlight on SQL Server, Server connections that are running the Windows 2008 R2 operating system may intermittently report WMI query failures with the following error message:
“Collection ‘Processes’ failed : WMI query ‘Win32_process’ failed : Out of memory. [0x80041006]”
This causes the server connection to not show performance data for the server connection and may only resume collecting data once the service has been restarted.
This is due to a known isssue in Microsoft Windows 2008 R2 and Windows 7 where the “Win32_Service” WMI class leaks memory.
The hotfix is intended to correct only the problem above and is not available via Windows Update.
This may resolved by requesting the hotifx from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/981314 and installing the hotifx which requires a restart to apply:
