Check the event log for more information. —> System.ServiceModel.EndpointNotFoundException: Could not connect to net.tcp://scom01.XXXXX.net:5724/DispatcherService.

So, I got an error today on my SCOM lab. It seems some service are failing on start-up. Its been a long while since I touched SCOM and right now I wanted to “get back in the horse” since I will be doing a lot of monitoring for a new project. Might as well go back to System Center.

This time its fairly easy, error says the connection “Actively refused”. Basically as a developer myself, I am just going to say that the endpoint is down or is in faulted state.

I checked IIS if SCOM uses any WCF endpoint and it struck me, its TCP. Duh. Maybe its a self hosted WCF service and is running as a “Service”. Low and behold, there are a couple System Center services that are not running but its on “automatic” which is weird.

Started both service and viola! I can go back to my console.

Now back to my lab. Cheers!
