Issue:
sqlserver Probe GUI in Infrastructure Manager may fail to open after upgrading to sqlserver 5.30.

An application crash will be seen in the Event Viewer of the Windows machine where Infrastructure Manager is running:

Faulting application name: conf_sqlserver_5.30.exe, version: 1.0.0.0, time stamp: 0x59f9be90
Faulting module name: nimbus_AES.dll, version: 1.1.0.0, time stamp: 0x57ea204f

Report Id: 09f2e040-31e8-11e8-958b-000c2902690a 


 
Resolution:
On the workstation where IM is installed, locate the folder that is referenced in the "Faulting application Path" in the application crash details.
e.g.:
C:\Users\ADMINI~1\AppData\Local\Temp\2\util\ 

From this folder, delete the following: 

conf_sqlserver_5.30.exe 
conf_sqlserver*.exe
nimbus_AES.dll 

After this, restart the diststv probe on the primary hub (or the hub you're logged into in IM) and the issue will be resolved.
