Heyas,

I have turned Utility Controller on and enrolled my HA cluster.

Servers are run in passive mode and am logged on the first instance of the High Availability Cluster . Not the individual server itself.

It's been a week now, my question is why is no data coming through for the utility control point.

Any assistance is appreciated.

Thank you.

Check if the sysutility* jobs are running.
You can also read my article about the Utility Explorer to see if you performed all the steps.

Sorry, can't remember in any other thing rather than drop and recreate the Utility Explorer.

Hi Vitor,

I have dropped and tried to re-create the utility explorer when I try to recreate it get the following error.  See screenshot.

I have already dropped the utility database which was part of HA group.

Thank you.

Hi Vitor,

Tried following the method, in the MSDN article the server is no longer a UCP instance in 'Managed Instances' in Utility explorer, see screenshot.

Also when I click on the server name, in Utility explorer I get the following error see screenshot.

Thank you.

Hi Vitor,

I followed this MSDN article and the UCP is now removed, problem solved.

https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee210565(SQL.105).aspx

The following command remove a managed instance of SQL Server from the SQL Server Utility.

EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_sysutility_mi_remove;

Thank you
