Global Service Monitor Failing Configuration

February 1, 2015

Just a quick post about a failing GSM configuration.
I had two management servers on a customer site running Server 2012 R2. When configuring GSM as described here:

I recieved an error while authenticating. “Message: Could not get a token for Subscription Service. Authentication failed for provided Subscription Id and Shared Access Key. AppFabric ACS Uri: ‘’.”

This is caused by incorrect or missing root certificates.
This issue can be solved by installing KB931125 on the management servers. The update can be found here:

This updates add quite some certificates in the Trusted Root Certification Authorities.

When you restart the HealtService and start the configuration again the issue should be fixed.
