For some reason, the PowerShell scripts that power the discovery of certificates are failing … the event log and errors below say the script “timedout”.

Using the latest PKI Certificate Management Pack found here:



Haven’t been able to solve this issue yet …



Event ID 10006 in the Operations Manager Event Log:

Discovery task has timed out.
Discovery name: SystemCenterCentral.Utilities.Certificates.LocalScriptProbe.RootCertificate.Discovery
Instance name: Personal Computer Certificate Store
Management group name: ****
Also some Power Shell script failed to run alerts:
Forced to terminate the following PowerShell script because it ran past the configured timeout 300 seconds.
Script Name: SystemCenterCentral.Utilities.Certificates.Certificate_Verify_Script_V6.ps1
One or more workflows were affected by this.
Workflow name: SystemCenterCentral.Utilities.Certificates.LocalScriptProbe.NonRootCertificate.DiscoveryInstance name: Personal Computer Certificate Store
Instance ID: {F168E521-2C5D-BDBF-A117-32D55CBFEE7B}
I don’t quite understand why the Power Shell discovery scripts are failing to return results and timing out … this explains why deleted certs are not disappearing, new certs aren’t being discovered, and perhaps why the state isn’t changing.




Anyone able to assist?
