Where can I find a list of the numeric error codes and what they mean?

Example: Error #462 - The remote server machine does not exist or is unavailable 

This one is being returned in response to a WMI service probe, where:

- the server is reachable (by address & DNS name) and

- the server reports the service as running. 

Server runs WinServer 2008, R2 SP1 Build 7601; IM ver is 6.1.6 build 11A123

Update: the example turned out to be a DNS issue, but is there a list of error codes somewhere?.

Hi Evan,

Unfortunately, something like this doesn't exist yet. However, it's a great idea so I created an enhancement request for us to create an error reference section in our user guide and community portal. You have been added a contact to the request so any updates will generate an email notification to you. The Enhancement Request article number is KBA-36489-D0G4Y1 for your reference.

 Any further news on this enhancement?

Two additional unknown error codes, both in response to WMI Service monitoring: 2147023170 & 2147024891.

Clues welcome.

Hi Evan,

Those are error codes being passed in by the Windows OS. We just include the received error code in the Debug log currently, and don't have a lookup table to translate them, which would be the enhancement requested.

Windows errors seem to be largely general when translated, though. and that might be less useful than hoped.

Using google and searching for WMI error 2147023170 took me to a link showing that error as a Remote Procedure Call (RPC) failure.

The 2147024891 error is "DCOM Access Denied"

thanks, Mike
