Having problems with Microsoft CRM Asynchronous Processing Service RRS feed

  • Question

  • Guys,

    I keeing problems with Microsoft CRM Asynchronous Processing Service. It is supposed to be up but workflows are not processed.

    Event log says:

    Event Type:	Error
    Event Source:	MSCRMAsyncService
    Event Category:	None
    Event ID:	17188
    Date:		8/5/2011
    Time:		5:13:21 PM
    User:		N/A
    Computer:	UCRMWEB
    An error occured while loading performance counters. Counter Category: UCRMWEB. Exception: System.InvalidOperationException: The requested Performance Counter is not a custom counter, it has to be initialized as ReadOnly.
     at System.Diagnostics.PerformanceCounter.Initialize()
     at System.Diagnostics.PerformanceCounter..ctor(String categoryName, String counterName, String instanceName, Boolean readOnly)
     at Microsoft.Crm.Asynchronous.PerformanceCounters.InitializeCounter(PerformanceCounter& counter, String counterName, String instanceName)

     at Microsoft.Crm.Asynchronous.AsyncService.OnStart(String[] args).
    For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

    When I restart It appears to be working again but then It stops working again :(

    Have you had a similar problem ?.

    Or how can I reinstalled just that service ?


    Thanks for any clue given.

  • It could be.

    I am not sure how it happened but counter for Async Service did not exist. I manually created based on another environment. Let's see if not it does not stop again

    I will keep you inform.


    Thanks Guys!
