    2016 Server - WMI Port exhaustion


      Has anyone else had issues with this?  Anyone know if their is an out of band hotfix for it?   I couldn't not find anything searching technet.

      Twice I have been hit by one server causing port exhaustion on a poller.


      From what I can tell,

           1. WMI connection attempts to establish

           2. connection times out, but never closes.   It does not even enter a time_wait status.

           3.  Eventually application monitors start to fail across the board due to port exhaustion.



      I uploaded the application monitor i threw together for this too.
