|"Windows could not start the Microsoft Monitoring Agent on Local Computer. For more information, review System Event Log. If this is a non-Microsoft service, contact the service vendor, and refer to service-specific error code -2130771964"
There's a couple TechNet articles in regards to this service not starting (permissions on registry entries and folder permissions), but I couldn't find my exact issue.
I finally found the culprit in the Operations Manager Logs - it appeared to be a corrupt database issue.
|"HealthService (4346) Health Service Store: Database recovery/restore failed with unexpected error -543."
I found a non-official post that helped clear the database at systemcentercentral.com (http://www.systemcentercentral.com/flushing-the-health-service-and-state-and-cache/)
To resolve the issue:
- Move or Delete the database files located in "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Monitoring Agent\Agent\Health Service State\Health Service Store"
- Start the Microsoft Monitoring Agent service
The database should be recreated if there's no other issues.
