"Error communicating with component" and missing sms_executive service
Hi, On my Primary Site server, recently, I started getting the error "Error communicating with component" when querying the status of components on a site system. There are 4 site systems on the primary site. one is the primary site server and the other 3 are DPs and a few other roles (assigned roles via console, not installed via setup.exe). On the admin console, I used to be able to query all components and only a couple on th ePS were stopped (normal). Now, all 5 components on site system #2 return the communication error. (SMS_component_monitor, sms_executive, sms_mp_control_manager, sms_mp_file_dispatch_manager, sms_outbox_monitor) I rebooted the primary site server ad the site system #2, and the error still occurs... Site system #2 seems OK, logs don't change when I query from PS. Site system#3 and 4 have DP and other roles, and are queried OK. I see this in the status messages "SMS Site Component Manager is reinstalling this component on this site system.". It has been trying for about 24 hours. Also, #2 is missing the service called "sms_executive". Any ideas on how to get the status querying again? thanks

I think, you need to check the log file. I would suggest you to review sitecomp.log so that you can find more details about the issue and start trouleshooitng.

Start by looking at the sitecomp.log file and see which components it's trying to reinstall. Then open the log files for each of those components. You can paste the errors in your reply.Kent Agerlund | My blogs: http://blog.coretech.dk/author/kea/ and http://scug.dk/ | Twitter @Agerlund | Linkedin: /kentagerlund
