I've got a server that'll boot and log let you term serv into it at 6 min but acutally become useful at 18 min from hitting reboot. After rooting around in the logs I strongly think it's a service timing out and my current suspect is the WMI service. This used to be a hyper-v host but has been repurpsed w/o formatting to a Server 2k7 R2 OCS director. I normally would be more through but we are on a tight timeline with consultants. :(
To the meat of the matter: How do I tell what services the WMI service uses as dependants? I can see what depends on it and I'd rather not have to look through EVERY process to determine this.
Beyond this, if anyone's had any ideas/suggestions on how to troubleshoot WMI or this kind of error or tools would be welcome. I want to re-install WMI but I don't think that's reasonable/plasuable without doing a 'repair' install of the server.
