Failed Accessing Windows Event Log: Microsoft-Windows-BranchCache/Operational

I stumbled about the following warning at a customer:

The warning was thrown for several servers and claimed, that the special eventlog for the feature “branch cache” was not able to be read.
Inspecting the systems didn’t show up that the branch cache feature installed.
Also netsh branchcache show status brought up the message: “This command can only be executed when BranchCache is installed.”

The problem was, that branch cache was installed on the systems brought up a warning, but not needed anymore.
While they where installed and configured, SCOM has discovered the systems.
So I installed the brach cache feature again, set the branch cache to disabled using netsh and uninstalled branch cache feature.

After that I disabled the discovery rules shown in the screenshot below.

Next step was to remove the disabled discoveries from the database using the powershell.


After that, I removed the disable overrides.

So the warnings didn’t appear again.
