Restarting Data Collection (MDW)

Most data collection errors can be resolved by restarting data collection. A PowerShell script can be used to:

  1. Stop data collection in all the SQL Server instances running on the machine
  2. Kill dcexec.exe processes
  3. Delete all cache files (our cache directory is c:\temp)
  4. Start data collection in all the SQL Server instances running on the machine
