Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am recieving an error in my application event log of a server as shown below:

The agent was unable to send data to the MOM Server at (server.domain). The error code is 10054, An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host..

Googling it I could find these posts.. https://blogs.technet.com/b/cliveeastwood/archive/2006/06/27/439109.aspx http://support.microsoft.com/kb/885416

Tried adding a registry entry but doesnt seems to be working. Also this server is set to sync its time from an ESXi host. Sometime it syncs but fails to sync some time. Then it gets automatically synced at some other point of time. Is these two events connected somehow?

Can some one point me in right direction to get a solution?
